Exploring Cousteau’s Underwater World
Discover the fascinating marine world through our highly entertaining and family-friendly visit of Monaco’s iconic Oceanographic Museum and Aquarium.
One of the most iconic highlights of Monaco is its Oceanographic Museum. Built in 1878 right off the cliff of “Le Rocher”, the Oceanographic museum is not only a museum: it is also an active research center which was directed by famous oceanographer Jacques Yves Cousteau for many years.
The visit starts with the higher floors of the museum. Let your marine biologist tell you all about the underwater world and the birth of this world famous research center. You will learn about the history of ocean exploration and meet face to face with some of the most impressive creatures of the sea.
After about 20 minutes, you will head down into the aquarium. There is no better place to learn about marine ecosystems than the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco. Your marine biologist will explain how each species are interconnected and the effect of man on these fragile ecosystems. To make it truly unique, follow your guide backstage and discover the other side of the water tanks.
Finally, you will be lead to the tactile pool where an animator will let you touch some of the living organisms that can be found under water. A perfect way to introduce your family to the beauty and fragility of the oceans.
For a full experience, combine this activity with our Splendors Of Grace Kelly’s Monaco, where our family-friendly guide will take you to the other highlights of Monaco, including the Cathedral where Princess Grace Kelly rests in peace.
