Prince Rainier III of Monaco started his automobile collection in the 1950s. Throughout his lifetime, he amassed an impressive number of cars. The collection is now displayed in a modern exhibition space neighbouring the scenic Port Hercule.

The museum was inaugurated in 1993 and features various cars, ranging from early steam-powered vehicles to modern sports cars.
