  • « Polar Mission » exhibition

The “Polar Mission” exhibition is the flagship event at the Oceanographic Museum in Monaco, inviting visitors to step into the shoes of a reporter and discover the North and South Poles through five themed areas, including the must-see “Immersion” room and its interactive projections. Bears, belugas and penguins await you!

  • « Poles, fragile worlds » exhibition

The journey continues with the “Poles, Fragile Worlds” photographic exhibition. From 1 July to 5 November, visitors will also be transported to the polar regions thanks to iconic photographs captured by Greg Lecoeur. In addition to the museum, his works can be admired in the stations at Cannes, Marseille Saint-Charles, Nice and Paris – Gare de Lyon. In partnership with the SNCF (French Railways), the images in the train stations feature the Arctic and Antarctic, raising awareness of the fragility of these ecosystems.
