Musée Océanographique de Monaco

Most of our days in France got off to a rather slow start. Ill be the first one to say that I’m not exactly what you call a morning person, but Fabien is on a whole new level. We had decided that we were going to spend the day at the Oceanography Museum in Monaco but by the time we actually got out the door is was time for lunch, and a late one tbh. We had lunch along the promenade in Menton to avoid the outrage prices in Monaco.

By the time we got to the Museum we basically had it our to ourselves.

The lower level of the museum is the aquarium, with a huge coral reef exhibit in the middle.IMG_2079.JPGIMG_2081.jpgIMG_2082.jpgIMG_2086.jpgIMG_2159.jpg

Don’t worry, after five minutes I told him it was time to give the other kids a turn. ^^

This is where I got to act like a child, I could have watched all of Nemo’s little brothers and sisters all day. SOO many of them.

The upstairs of the museum was full of historical and cultural exhibits.

You could also go up to the rooftop, where the floor was covered with a native turtle design. From here you could see all of Monaco. There were even real turtles up there too.

The Museum is located on the Rock of Monaco, right near the Palace and is right on the water. It is absolutely amazing to see from the other side.

I hope everyone has a good weekend! I’m off to Old Orchard Beach tomorrow for family vacation!
