What to Do in Monaco During the Day

OCEANOGRAPHIC MUSEUM

The Oceanographic Museum is Monaco’s finest museum and principle cultural attraction.

The grandest setting you will ever find for an Oceanographic Museum, housed on the Rock of Monaco, it straddles the cliffs overlooking the Mediterranean. Inside, the renowned ethnographic collection is housed in fabulous old glass cases, while in the basement a modern aquarium is home to some bizarre and fascinating species. Still a world famous research institution, the displays are ever changing according to the frontiers of science so, although routed in time, the displays here are also as modern as you can get.
