Institute of Oceanography
Mo to Fr from 09:00 AM to 06:00 PMThe Foundation of the Institut Océanographique has a deceptively simple mission: to know and develop understanding of the ocean. It was created in 1906 by Albert I, the Prince of Monaco. The Institut in Paris is the seat of the Foundation and serves as a center of research for students, professionals, and anyone interested in the sea. Conferences, lectures, and exhibits are hosted at the site, and a bookshop at the pedagogic Centre de la Mer provides materials to carry the experience and education home!
