Quick links: Contact Description Reviews
This exceptional museum of marine sciences is a monumental, architectural masterpiece with a grandiose façade rising majestically above the sea to a height of 279 feet. Inaugurated in 1910 by its founder Prince Albert I, it took 11 years to build, using 100,000 tons of stone from La Turbie. The Museum, open to the public on two floors, contains remarkable collections of marine fauna and numerous specimens of sea creatures (stuffed or in skeleton form, including the skeleton of a 66 foot whale). In the basement, visitors can enjoy the spectacular delights of the world-famous aquarium, offering 4,000 species of fish and over 200 families of invertebrates.Read more
