The Museum is really nice and relaxing, has beautiful and interesting rooms as for example the Whale room.

Unfortunately we arrived late at Monaco and consequently at the Museum and didn’t have the chance to visit the Museum completely. Around 18:40 they announced that Museum was closing and didn’t give any opportunity to visit in last minutes fastly some rooms or the roof. Staff complaint about the 8 hours shift and didn’t show any pleasure in the work they are doing.

Nice for a one and half hour diversion, pleasant and visited for free off season as part of the ‘Passport to Monaco’ deal which is avail off season.
Nice but there are better facilities of this type around the world - my advice is if it’s free visit , if not use the money for lunch on the Horizon restaurant at the Fairmont, 4 course lunch 45Euros highly recommend!

Spent about 2 hours here exploring the tanks and museum, beautiful building on the coast and stunning fish and exhibits.

Will definitely keep anyone of any age occupied for the time of the visit.

About 10 Euro entry (not sure as had free tickets) but worth the money you would pay in.

We came here easter weekend so it was rather packed with masses of children but it was good. The exhibits were good and the aquarium was well set out. The building itself is amazing built into the rock face. The views from the roof terrace were great. An enjoyable visit.

The museum is special really special.
You have to see it to believe it. Allow 2 hours for visit.
So many beautiful underwater tanks full of the delights of the ocean,sharks and unusual fish species.
The upper floors house collections of fish and fossils etc. A must do in Monaco.
