Everything you need to know about the Fête du Musée at the Oceanographic Museum

Musée Océanographique de Monaco

This Saturday, the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco is running a host of activities for the whole family. Here are all the details about the upcoming Fête du Musée.  

To celebrate the seas and all the riches marine life has to offer, the Oceanographic Museum is playing host to the fourth edition of its popular Fête du Musée on Saturday 23rd September from 10am to 7pm. 


For the event, the Association of Friends of the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco (AAMOM) has organised a jam-packed programme for children aged three to 14, along with their families, who are all invited to come and discover the beauty and infinite pleasures of the marine world.  

Inside the museum, various workshops, treasure hunts, craft sessions, musical theatre productions (11am and 3.30pm) and virtual reality experiences (12pm and 5.15pm) will get young minds interested and involved, while out on the square in front of the famous institution, kiosks will be set up on themes related to education and the environment. 

These stands will include: appearances by AS Monaco Kid’s Tour, featuring team members; an adventure into “Penguin Country” with the Centre Scientifique de Monaco; Riviera Française and Natura 2000 with a space dedicated to the marine protected area in Cap Martin; an upcycling workshop by Sacrée Charlotte; Monaco’s Tourism Department with a space explaining greenhouse gases and their impacts; and the International Hydrography Organisation, which will be bringing along a fascinating selection of seafloor maps. There will also be a socca stand from La Socca Dance.


Whilst at the museum, take some time to check out the Polar Mission exhibition. This incredible interactive production covers life in both poles, how people and animals adapt to the extreme conditions, and historic and modern explorations and missions. 

The AAMOM also is inviting people to come and sponsor a fish. For a contribution of at least €50, sponsors will receive a certificate formalising their relationship, an identity card of the chosen animal and unlimited access to the museum for a year for an adult and a child under 18.
