The half-term holidays start this Friday! Our editorial team has some recommendations for keeping your children busy and entertained.

1. Explore the seabed

Why not kick off the school holidays at the Oceanographic Museum? There are exhibitions, escape games and other activities in store! 6-12 year olds can even sign up for Club Oceano where they will find out about the ocean and its mysteries over five days through fun, scientific and cultural activities.

3. Visit an exclusive photo exhibition about the Princely Family

Until March 31, the Bibliothèque Irlandaise Princess Grace (Princess Grace Irish Library) is hosting a photo exhibition dedicated to the official visit to Ireland that Prince Albert II, Hereditary Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella made in September 2021. It’s a chance to (re)discover the ties between the Principality and Ireland, since Princess Grace was from an Irish family on her father’s side.
