Oceanographic Museum (Monaco)

The girls LOVED this place. It’s a museum of marine sciences with some great exhibits and an aquarium on the lower level. They were having an exhibit all about sharks (and their preservation). The highlight was the shark tank with small sharks that you could pet as they swam by. I think the girls spent two hours there- we had to drag them away (the room was very dark so I didn’t get a pic of that, unfortunately).

This place is SO massive that it’s hard to get even 1/4 of it in a pic. It’s an incredibly beautiful building (it took 11 years to build!).

On the roof they had a wall where you could write notes to the sharks.

This pic cracks me up. The girls each got to pick out a treat at the museum gift shop. Quinnie chose a shark key chain. Kiera was upset because she wanted two gifts but we would only buy her one (lol!).
