Until May 5th, the institution will celebrate the coming of spring and host a fun and educational bouquet of things to do for all ages to enjoy.

On April 6th, the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco officially launched its spring season. For one month, there will be a surplus of novel activities on-site, with the highlight being the weekend of Saturday 20th to Monday 22nd. During these three days, a special event entitled 20,000 eggs under the sea will provide special insight into reproductive and birthing cycles in the marine environment. The Museum’s aquariums will be specially laid out to provide clues for riddles that can be found on the eggs scattered around the aquatic environment, with an obvious pedagogic edge. Indeed, a new way to discover the Monegasque institution’s rich treasures.

Until May 6th, visitors will also be able to discover many programs that are mainly sensory. With the tactile pool, children will be able to differentiate the textures of starfish, sea urchins or young fish. During special sessions, they will also be introduced to the profession of aquariologist and will have the joy of feeding the museum’s animals.

With ImmerSeave 360 °, families will be able to discover distant lands and rare species by watching surround-screen films devoted to giant lizards, sperm whales, monk seals, and the Tubbataha Natural Park. The screenings are conceived as a way of traveling and also testifying to the many expeditions that the Oceanographic Institute conducts as part of its research. Learning has never been more fun!
