One of the most insightful methods of observing the history of an area is by examining its money. The Museum of Stamps and Coins allows us to do exactly that. Chronicle the dramatic history of this small nation as it was lost and regained by the Grimaldi family, the Sardinian and French stamps that were popular before Monaco established its own stamp and many such changes in history reflected through paper and the meaning we attach to it. Such museums are of course of prime interest to philatelists and numismatists but if one keeps an open mind and an interest to gain knowledge then stamps and coins have much to teach.

A "must-see" visit for coin enthusiasts and those admirers of the Princely family. The displays are exceptionally presented and there is such a wonderful display of the history of the stamps and coins issued by the Treasury of Monaco in one place. I have visited several times during special exhibits and have viewed many one-of-a-kind coins and medals - highly recommend and a great team of museum staff who are multi-lingual.
Well organized and air conditioned.
Nice little museum. When I went it was entirely empty except my party of people.
Musée très sympa à faire pour tous les passionnés de timbres et de monnaies et de Monaco! Nous avons été accueillis, ma sœur et moi par une femme très souriante et serviable que je remercie pour la patience dont elle a fait preuve avec ma sœur qui a passé dix fois plus de temps dans la boutique que dans le musée. :) Merci à elle et au plaisir d'y retourner.
Super équipe !
