Beautifully presented but quite small and all information is in French so is a good idea to start learning French while observing the expo. There are a few interesting things to see but most people would be probably finished in about 10 - 15 minutes. It worths a very small detour (100 metres) if you combine it with the stunning... More

The museum is accessed via the Exotic Gardens so it should be incorporated into this visit. The museum is very small, only comprising a couple of rooms, but there are some very interesting things to see, The mammoth skeleton is stunning and the various skeletons of our prehistoric ancestors certainly set you imagining where we came from. There are also... More

Fine to pass a half hour. The mammoth skeleton is impressive as are the stuffed wildlife. Yes it's mainly in French but that's a good chance to try out your French from school. Included in price of exotic garden so worth a look.

A small museum with interesting local history but didnt leave a lasting impression. As there isnt a lot to do unless you are a multi millionaire, this is a good way to pass the time depending on how long you are staying in Monte Carlo

My title says it all - we were in and out in minutes, nothing of interest to us here at all. There were just a few exhibits and nothing written in English, so you couldn't understand them anyway.

At the end of the exotic gardens you can access this place. It's beautifully presented but quite small and all information is in French only - this isn't a criticism, just an observation. There are a few interesting things to see but most people would be probably finished in about 10 - 15 minutes. Not worth going to see on... More

We went because it was pouring. But we live in London & I think the Aquarium here & others in the UK are just as good & if not better and a lot cheaper we paid 45euro for 2 adults & 2 children. The aquarium on lower 2 floors was the usual mix & coral& small sharks. The upper floors... More
