Prince Albert and the Oceanographic Museum

 While wandering through the gardens in Monaco, we came to an overlook where there is a statue of Prince Albert. Known for his love of the sea and his study of oceanography, it's only fitting that he is portrayed here in seafaring attire at the captain's helm as he gazes towards the sea forevermore.

The Musee Oceanographique (Oceanographic Museum) in Monaco is open daily except Christmas or during the Grand Prix.  While we didn't have time to explore the museum during our tour, if you plan a day in Monaco and are interested in more than aquariums, the museum should be on your list.  The museum is located just outside the car parking garage and before you enter the gardens or head toward the Palace.
