Context

The Oceanographic Museum was inaugurated in 1910 by Monaco's modernist reformer, Prince Albert I. Jacques-Yves Cousteau was director from 1957 to 1988. Today it shelters about 6,000 fish specimens and 300 families of invertebrates and offers 6,000 m2 open to the public. The Shark Lagoon, reveals the diversity of the coral reef populated by a multitude of tropical fish and live corals. As part of an international program that brings together public aquariums from around the world, the Monaco Aquarium plays an important role in the conservation of endangered species threatened by global change or overfishing. It is thus part of the safeguarding and sustainable management of natural environments and species. The museum presents an invaluable collection of art and craft items related to the sea, and offers the opportunity to learn, wonder and discover the variety of the marine world. It aims to be a place of information and mediation between oceanographic research and the general public. Associating Art and Science is the initial desire of this high place of the marine world.
