Officially announced on the Journal Officiel de Monaco on June 10th 2011, the Friends of the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco Association carries the mission to gather the members who wish to:
- contribute to the development and the reputation of the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco, a major part of the Oceanographic Institute, Albert Ier Foundation, Prince of Monaco, which plays an important role in the identity and the prestige of Monaco on the international stage,
- support the various actions carried out by the Oceanographic Museum, on the national and international stage, which leads to a better understanding of the oceans and its protections and ensure that the Museum respects the legacy and the wishes of its founder, the Prince Albert Ier, later followed by H.S.H. the Prince Albert II of Monaco, Honorary President of the Oceanographic Institute.
The Association is situated within the walls of the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco.
Famous for its 675.000 visitors per year, its international reputation and its commitment to the protection of the oceans, the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco has always been one of the main attractions of the Principality.
The Association will from now on support the development of patronage, create partnerships and broaden the impact of the Museum and the Oceanographic Institute.
Patronage, the fundamental aspect of the Association, is not only a financial issue. It is above all a partnership, a sharing of relations, an exchange… which is mutually nurturing and reinforcing. The Museum benefits from the competence of each member of the Association to increase its influence and charm.
From the very beginning of its existence, the Association is completely oriented to an international composition: its Board of Directors represents more than 10 different nationalities. This combination is a treasure, which allows the Association to attract support and beneficence from all over the world. It is also a great opportunity to communicate among different cultures. The cultural, scientific and artistic exchanges allow a better understanding and a greater respect for each other.
100 years’ missions of the Museum, one young Association: the result is exciting and encouraging. The Friends of the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco Association is ready to share its passion and contribute to the beautiful alliance between Art and Science.
