This museum was founded in 1910 by Albert I, the great grandfather of the present prince. In the main rotunda is a statue of Albert in his favourite costume - that of a sea captain. Displayed are specimens he collected during 30 years of expeditions aboard his oceanographic ships. The aquarium that is one of the finest in Europe, contains more than 90 tanks.
