Inaugurated in 1910 by Prince Albert I of Monaco, the Oceanographic Museum is an exceptional place dedicated to the Mediterranean and tropical marine world. More than 6,000 specimens are displayed in their natural environment, in a hundred pools. At this unmissable attraction, a veritable temple of the sea, visitors are not only invited to discover the amazing species of the Mediterranean and the varied fauna of the coral reef, but can also see an impressive shark lagoon.
This journey through the marine world is accompanied by activities that will leave children and adults with many wonderful memories, such as the sound and light show in the Whale Room, the tactile pool where you can feel the spines of a sea urchin or touch a starfish, or the shark-stroking pool for a really memorable experience. The spectacular ImmerSEAve 360 ° attraction lets you experience the most sensational of diving trips, with no mask or snorkel needed!
Don't miss the cabinet of curiosities of the marine world, where the display cases and old bookshelves contain scale models, diving suits, skeletons and fossils. Among the stars of this superb area are Klingert's diving suit (1797) and a stuffed polar bear from the west coast of Greenland.
