Cars Collection of HSH the Prince of Monaco

The classic cars collection of H.S.H. the Prince of Monaco now has a new look in a new location at Port Hercule, just a few yards from the iconic Formula 1 circuit.
The new exhibition space is home to some 70 vehicles, in a modern and dynamic setting with a specially designed scenography to provide visitors with an optimal experience.

A little history

In the late 1950s, motoring enthusiast Prince Rainier III began his collection of classic cars. Over the years, the collection grew and the garage of the Prince’s Palace soon proved too small to contain the hundred or so superb automobiles, with their majestic or sporty lines, beautiful bodywork, gleaming bonnets, and royal grilles!
And so in 1993, Prince Rainier III decided to put his treasures on public display.

This 3,500 m2 exhibition, the only one of its kind in the world, comprises around 70 vehicles including racing cars that have competed in the Monte-Carlo Rally and the Monaco F1 Grand Prix.

Visitors can step back in time and relive the most important moments in the history of the Princely Family, as told through unique cars such as the Chrysler that Prince Rainier had brought over specially from the USA to collect Princess Grace at the port, or the landaulet Lexus built for the wedding of H.S.H. Prince Albert II and H.S.H. Princess Charlene in 2011.
There is also a space dedicated to a selection of racing cars, with models that demonstrated their prowess in Formula 1, the Monte-Carlo Rally, or the Paris-Dakar Rally.
