Monaco 2015
50 Million Visitors to the Monaco Oceanographic Museum

The Oceanographic Museum of Monaco was founded by H.S.H. Prince Albert I of Monaco in 1910 to bring together the two driving forces of civilization: Art and Science, offering visitors a unique experience, allowing them to discover, love and assist in the protection of the oceans, thus preserving the common heritage of humankind. The Museum welcomes international contemporary art exhibitions since 2010, to the likes of Damien Hirst, Huang Yong Ping, Mark Dion or even Marc Quinn. A meeting place for the mediation between scientific, political, socio-economical actors and the public in general, the Oceanographic Institute is engaged since 2012 on a leading program to create awareness, love and protect sharks.
