Things to do and see in Monaco.
The Monaco Museum of Vintage / Ancient Automobiles is a collection of the Grimaldi Family. It is a unique museum, about which, for some reason, only a few tourists know. Nevertheless, both adults and children, enthusiasts and admirers of beautiful cars, are likely to be amazed by it.
Located on the terraces of the Fontvieille Commercial Centre above Carrefour, the exposition introduces the visitors to the automobiles of all ages, manufactured at different time by the major firms of Europe and America. You can find here the military and vintage cars, horse carriages, luxurious Hispano Suiza 1928, and Cadillac 1653, as well as a number of racing models. Overall, there are around hundred automobiles in the collection. They were collected at different times and renovated by Prince Rainier III, the father of incumbent Prince Albert II. A special exposition is dedicated to the Monaco Formula One Grand Prix history.
