Oceanographic Museum of Monaco, Monte-Carlo

4.3
Housed in an architecturally impressive building which teeters on a cliff edge looking out to sea, Oceanographic Museum of Monaco offers educational marine exhibits in an opulent setting. Home to the Mediterranean Science Commission, the museum provides exhibits that will delight young and old. Highlights include the shark lagoon with its 6 m (20 ft) glass walls, where you can see blacktip reef sharks, nurse sharks, sea turtles, and moray eels. Move through the museum to see the turtle island and the tactile pool, which gives kids a chance to touch the fauna and flora of the Mediterranean. To plan Monte-Carlo vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

  • We did not plan our visit ahead and picked up our tickets immediately. Somewhat crowded, but still worth viewing the impressive assortment and diversity of educational exhibits. Our 11 and 13 year old...  more »
  • The aquarium are very interesting to see, as well as the exhibition of the Museum. Which is unfortunate, is that there are much too crowded (normal for a month of August), and that although level-1 is about fresh and breathable, so the floors are sweltering. Practical side of the free toilets available but the - 1 only. Possibility of discounts on presentation of TER or tickets by grouping several visits to Monaco.

  • We parked in the parking of the museums of Monaco some floors below. Diversity of sea creatures and a lot of info in the aquarium. Our 3yr olds were​ much interested too.The museum is very nice too but we didn't spend much time there because we had it all in the aquarium. On the roof the view is super. there is a restaurant (check the time of the kitchen time) with an island for turtles and a play yard for children.
  • Great museum that gets you out of the sun for a bit. Ticket vending machines were not working with credit card, but the line was not long so it was fine. There's a beautiful park just next to it and the views of the coast and city walking up there are fabulous as well.
  • We were drawn into the museum by a statue out front. It was part of an art exhibit called Borderline that coexist with the natural history. It was excellent. We had no issues and the museums was not busy for a Sunday afternoon at 1pm. The building itself and its views are worth the 12 euro admission.
  • amazing aquarium with full of colorful fishes. The view nearby is fantastic too. To be recommended for everyone between 7-77years!
  • An excellent museum. Great place to bring children as they will love it! However also great for adults too!

Monte Carlo is known as one of Europe's most luxurious destinations, and the choice of places to stay largely reflects this reputation, with historical hotels acting as the city's most notable landmarks.
