The biggest collection of marine world curiosities
Open all year round, the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco boasts an impressive collection of over 6,000 specimens in a restored natural habitat.
Located on Avenue Saint-Martin, a short distance from the Prince’s Palace, the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco is the perfect excursion for travellers on a Monaco yacht charter.
As one of the oldest aquariums in the world, the museum holds an authoritative position on marine biology and proudly offers information on how modern life affects the marine environment.
Spread over five levels, scores of pools house thousands of fish and invertebrates as well as one hundred species of both hard and soft corals. In addition to the diverse selection of brightly coloured fish and invertebrates in the aquariums, one of the biggest attractions to the museum is the famous shark lagoon.
While exploring the aquariums there are opportunities to feed animals in the tactile pool, get up close to some sea turtles, witness a light and sound show in the Whale Room and even indulge in some virtual reality which transports visitors into the depths of the ocean with ImmerSEAve 360 °.
There is also a museum section, which houses many mounted specimens, photographs and archive documents, and a huge whale hangs from the ceiling.
