We do think it was worth to visit. A lot to see in a rather small place. Sometimes it can be crowded. Glad we did this.

As a family we all enjoyed visiting the aquarium. We were there for about 2 hours. The area that it is in is next to the palace with plenty more to see and nice quaint streets with cafes and eateries. Enjoy!

Aquarium's are ten a penny and the Monaco Oceanographic Museum contains nothing exceptional. It is, however, in the most stunning building and it is worth a visit to see the stunning building.

Before visiting the aquariums, which are small but full of interesting creatures, a visit to the section that recounts the exploration and discoveries made in the early 20th century is most interesting. Not to miss the bathysphere in the entrance!

The Museum is really nice and relaxing, has beautiful and interesting rooms as for example the Whale room. Unfortunately we arrived late at Monaco and consequently at the Museum and didn’t have the chance to visit the Museum completely. Around 18:40 they announced that Museum...More
