There are several museums in Monaco. You'll find a comprehensive list thanks to the tourist office. They will give you reasons to visit them.

According to us, the only one worth a visit is the Oceanographic Museum, completely dedicated to the Sea. Worked here Alain BOMBARD when he prepared his famous Atlantic crossing with no food and no water and Jacques Yves COUSTEAU who headed the museum.

Entrance costs 14€ per adult, 7 to 10 per child according to his age. That's not cheap, but if you see one thing only in Monaco, choose this museum. It is open everyday but on Christmas and during the Formula 1 Grand Prix.

There is also a Museum housing a car collection with 100 cars. We haven't seen it yet. Entry costs 6,50€. That's not the Schlumpf collection though...

According to us, the Exotic garden will interest only specialists and connoisseurs.


Monaco hasn't really monuments worth visiting. For those who like the princely family, you can visit part of the Palace during some parts of the year.

In the streets

The best you can do is probably to wander in the streets. From Monte Carlo with its luxury boutiques to the Rock with its castle and its oceanographic museum, and also the Casino, the Auditorium terraces and the Larvotto beach you'll enjoy yourself. Note that Monaco enriched itself as time went by with several sculptures of all styles which you'll find in a lot of places and gardens.
