We visited the aquarium with our kids and we loved it! There are plenty of fish to see and also a nice display upstairs on the dedication of Monaco to preserving the oceans and sea life. Was a highlight of our time in Monaco.

Jacque Cousteau was the director here until 1988. The ocean museum had its 100th birthday in 2010. We should all look that good. The cost is: Adults (19 and over): €11 (low season), €14 (standard season), €16 (peak season). September and October are Standard Season...More

I absolutely cannot fault this place. We were in a day trip from Nice and decided to get the combined ticket with the car museum, which reduced the price. It was a bit of a walk from the train station with small children, but the...More

We were hiking around Monte Carlo, and decided to take the “boat taxi” from the Marina to the Oceanographic Museum. One can get there via bus, or boat taxi, but if you use the boat taxi it is a a bit of steep walk up...More

I would have given 3.5 out of 5 if possible as the exhibits did not disappoint and feeding time with sharks is always bound to excite. There is an expansion under way and that might clinch the extra 1/2 point. The venue calls itself a...More

My entry was through a combined ticket, having looked at their internet site, it would appear you get a discount if showing a valid student card. Prices vary depending on time of year. Bon vacances.
