Prince Rainier III Museum of Automobiles in Monaco
Prince Rainier III always had a passion for automobiles, and over a period of more than thirty years, he took advantage of the unique opportunities which presented themselves to build up an exceptional personal collection of historic cars. The collection included over one hundred vehicles which he had restored. Many were built by the most renowned European and American manufacturers and each, in its own way, marked its time. The full collection is now displayed, as envisaged by Prince Rainier, on five levels of specially tailored exhibit space overlooking the Terrasses de Fontvieille at the foot of the Rocher.
