Built on the flank of the famous Rock of Monaco, the Oceanographic Museum created by Prince Albert I, the great grandfather of H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco, has monitored the oceans for more than a century. It stands as an international reference for the understanding, admiring, and protecting of the world’s oceans.
Aquariums, permanent and temporary exhibitions, special events… the museum covers 6,500 sq meters on four floors. From visiting the Mediterranean Sea and tropical aquariums to passing by Turtle Island or perhaps the roof terrace restaurant, a solid half-day is needed to discover all that this Temple of the Sea has to offer.
Key points: Internationally recognized for its outstanding reputation, the museum houses more than 350 species of fish, with more than 6,000 specimens divided into 90 tanks.
Plus: On Wednesdays and weekends, you can visit the Touch Tank, to get to know the animals: from feeding them to ImmerSEAve 360° films, and a light and sound show in the Whale Room.
