Musée Océanographique de Monaco

Oceanographic Museum of Monaco in Monte Carlo

Fantastic mosaic floors of sealife....shells, starfish, fish borders, nets, octopus, ropes, ....
Almost all floors in the museum are mosaics of one kind or another. Absolutely a must-see if you get anywhere near. Difficult to photograph in summer due to the number of visitors and the sunlight glare from the many windows. When there, pay close attention t the details in the stone carvings on the outside of the building as well as the mosaics, aquariums and exhibits.
The entrance foyer has a huge circle with a mosaic of a ship and the outer border is one of stylized fish.
