Post-lockdown blues? More for your kids this summer

Oceanographic Museum

A day in the Oceanographic Museum of Marine Sciences with your children is always a day well spent. It is set beside the Monaco cliffs, with a massive variety of fauna and sea creatures of up to 6,000 kinds.

The museum was originally part of the oceanographic institute, designed to help people understand the science the vast ocean holds; so it’s great as an educational tour for children. But it’s so much more than just a museum: major attractions include seahorses, starfish, sea cucumbers, cuttlefish, jellyfish, lobsters, turtles, crabs, rays, sea urchins, and eels and of course – sharks!

The Oceanographic museum has a long history. It was established in the year 1910, by the the reforming prince of Monaco, Albert I. There were major renovations done to the museum and it reopened again for the public in the year 2010.
