The Prince’s private cars collection is absolutely amazing here. How lucky we get to see it in person! The lady at the front desk was extremely friendly. My son was over the moon. An absolute delightful experience from beginning to the end.
This place is must see if you are a car aficionado! They have the collection of cars from when they used carriages all the way up to today's new ones. They had the car of both royal weddings which are gorgeous. They have lots of cars from The Grand Prix with stop watches used back in the days from Tag Heuer who is now a sponsor of GP. Lots of makes some even discontinued like Daimler which is now part of Mercedes Benz, which are rare to see. You can also do the virtual simulator for the GP!
The one hour scheduled for the tour was no enough!! So, plan more, in case you are a passionate car lover! Also, be very careful about the schedule if you want to visit it in the same day with the castle. It is on another location and the last tour starts at 5pm! Parking is possible at the Carrefour nearby. And there, read careful the small prints of the pricing display!!
If you are a petrol head you need to visit Monaco Top Cars! There is also a simulator of the F1 track that is well worth having a go on! All the cars have the make, names and engine details on a small stand next to them. Some also have the 0 - 60 times aswell.
Lots of amazing cars! All sorts of types from original cars of the 1900s to F1 cars of today. Lots of brands, shapes, sizes, and models. If you or someone likes cars, this is a MUST VISIT. Even me, who does not like cars, loved the vintage automobiles on display.
