It’s Not All about Restaurants and Beach Clubs on the Riviera – Monaco Has One of the Most Incredible Aquariums in the World

Designed as a palace dedicated entirely to art and science, the Oceanographic Museum in Monaco, founded by Prince Albert I has been an iconic part of the legendary Rock of Monaco for over a century.  From the exquisite facades to the decoration in the salons, this magnificent building takes you into the fascinating world of the ocean.  With over 6,000 square meters and some 6,000 specimens on display to feast your eyes upon, the museum offers a welcome cultural contrast from the bustling Riviera, with an emphasis on protecting the oceans.


One of our favorite features of the museum is Bushnell’s ‘Turtle’ submarine – one of the first manned submarines in existence, built in 1776 out of wood and designed to be propelled under water by an operator who turned its propeller by hand!
