The public are invited to experience the Oceanographic Museum like they have never seen it before. For one unprecedented night, the museum will swing open its doors for an evening of discovery and adventure.

Armed with a torch, visitors will be able to wander through Monaco’s famous aquarium and museum, discovering coral reefs and over 6,000 specimens at nightfall.

The spectacular architecture of the museum will also be revealed through beams of torchlight, particularly the Salle des Conférences and the Salon d’Honneur.

Along the way, visitors can admire the imposing statue of Prince Albert I, founder of the Oceanographic Museum, and wonder in amazement at the fluorescent spectacle of the coral.

After an impressive encounter with a giant squid on the first floor, there’s an opportunity to explore the majestic Whale Room and confront the skeletons of sea mammals. Up on the roof-terrace, visitors will be spell-bound by the dark blue immensity of the Mediterranean sea, while a tasty refreshment will be served beneath the stars.

This one-of-a-kind experience will be offered by the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco as part of the ‘Just for You’ programme for guests staying at the Hôtel Métropole Monte-Carlo.
