The Oceanographic Museum is historical and visiting it affords a beautiful view over the area. Definitely worth a visit.

the ocean makes me feel at home, so much so that when I am inland I want it to death. There is something in the ocean that gives me peace, quiet. " "Never underestimate the power of the ocean." "I like to immerse myself in the ocean and to be able to feel only the calm around me." I feel honored to be a participant in this event organized by Monsieur Albert of Monaco

The main attraction of this aquarium is the building itself and the large center tank which is home to two reef sharks, one turtle and a large nurse shark, surrounded by a few dozen other smaller fish. The main tank can be viewed from almost every angle. I have visited many other aquariums and the one in Monte Carlo rates very average. Despite COVID the exhibit was very full. We had to wait to stand in front of the individual tanks a few minutes each time. You have to wear masks throughout. We went through the exhibition within 1 hour. Luckily, we bought a ticket before at the ‘Collection de voitures anciennes’ so we only had to queue to get inside (20mins). The ticket queue looked longer! Try and buy online, or go early.

It is clean and well maintained. It was very crowded although we went in the morning. Get tour tickets online if you can to avoid queuing.

The building was almost as interesting as the aquarium and the historical exhibits. It’s majestic, and beautifully appointed. I particularly loved the tiled floors, with a nautical theme. The aquarium exhibits are well set out and explained, and they are fascinating. The historical exhibits, particularly explaining the role of the current and previous Princes of Monaco, were also very interesting. Good to see all captioning in English and Italian as well as French. There was a series of arrows on the floor to ensure that people all moved in the same direction, and for the most part we could see the tanks without having to wait too long for the people ahead of us to finish. Hand sanitiser was available throughout, but there was nobody on the floor to monitor crowds and social distancing. Perhaps a bit of a worry, but it could be rectified easily. Well worth the visit.
