I’m in a helicopter! I’m in a shark tank! I’m in an airplane…bathroom…wait…what?Monaco…first step. Get a helicopter from the Nice airport. You gotta take a little shuttle there and then board and be super safe just like this. I’ll lock in and take off! This was such a cool experience, wow.

Hello and greetings from the back of a Eurocopter Helicopter. Flying to Monaco from Nice, France. It’s quite a luxury. Look outside here. That beautiful building right on the coast, that’s where I’m going. That’s the Ocean Museum. Landed, only 7 minutes.

We took a helicopter from Nice to Monaco.

Now straight to the hotel. Go inside to this view. Wow. I need more boats in my life. Getting dressed now. Next up the Musée océanographique de Monaco, a pet project of the Prince. We’re going into the big museum.

Hey, can I get a little hello? Alright, not everyone loves selfies as much as me.

This is my host committee, my welcome committee. They saved me a spot, boom. This is the VIP. This is the Prince of Monaco coming in. There he is on the left walking forward. The Prince of Monaco right there in the middle.

The VIP guest was the Prince of Monaco.

We’re here to celebrate this new graphic novel about his grandfather who was an oceanographer before it was cool to be an oceanographer, a conservationist and a lot more.

Well, the Prince has just made his grand entrance and the conference is going to begin. Because it’s entirely in French I will go and explore the museum now. Let’s go!

One of the most rad parts about Museum Hack is that I often times get access to museums after their closed like this one. Oh yeah, I should mention this huge giant squid is above me.

I’m exploring the museum now and it’s pretty awesome. Look at this. Listen, I’m here in Monaco only for about one day and I’m so l lucky to be able to visit museums like this and see so many great things.
