Musée Océanographique de Monaco
With its location facing the Mediterranean, it is no wonder Prince Albert I was passionate about marine biology and conservation. Looking to promote marine sciences and educate others, the prince opened the Museum of Oceanography of Monaco in 1910. There are now over 6,000 fish, with a shark lagoon and an important collection of live coral. Still dedicated to ocean conservation, the museum works closely with scientists and artists to inspire public interest.
