You don't only get to see marine life but also to admire Monaco's architecture! Getting to the museum was a bit difficult because the GPS doesn't understand you need to park in a parking garage first and then walk to the museum.

The building itself is absolutely stunning and sits atop a hill on the way up to the castle. It can be quite a strenuous walk so would recommend public transport if coming here. The price of admission was 14 Euros each which was fair for...More

This was a nice museum however not the most captivating in size or content. It is worth going to kill a few hours, however, be aware it will be over quicker than you think. We ran out of fish/museum quite suddenly.

Hello, is it easy to walk around in Monaco? From the Oceanographic Museum, then back to Monte Carlo casino? Is it far away or any other local transportation?

Of course you could walk everywhere if you wish, but it's a long distance. You're better off taking the bus 1 or 2 until casino.

There is a seagull living on the top of the building, living by the restaurant there. Does anyone remember his name?
