BECOME A FRIEND OF THE MUSEUM
More than 100 years after its inauguration, the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco can today count on the precious support of its Friends.
To symbolize their commitment and their attachment to the values of this young centenarian, they have formed an association, with the aim of promoting the Museum’s influence, encouraging its actions in favour of the oceans and helping it to carry out its projects.
THE ASSOCIATION'S MISSIONS
The Friends of the Oceanographic Museum de Monaco Association (AAMOM)
AAMOM’s main mission is to mobilize members who want to :
- To promote the development and influence of the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco, which contributes to the identity and prestige of Monaco throughout the world,
- To support the various actions carried out by the Museum and the Oceanographic Institute, both nationally and internationally, in order to increase the services it provides to the world of the sea in the field of knowledge and protection of the oceans.
4 MEMBERSHIP STATUSES
From “Volunteer” to “Benefactor”, there are six different ways to get involved in the life of the Museum, either by giving their time or by participating financially and politically.
As a token of appreciation, our Friends receive various benefits commensurate with their contribution, such as unlimited access to the entire Museum, VIP invitations to exhibitions, events and conferences, and exclusive backstage tours.
The Association of Friends of the Oceanographic Museum is ready to welcome you to share its passion and to raise the alliance between Art and Science.
AT THE HEART OF THE MUSEUM and across the globe
With its 675,000 visitors per year, its international reputation and its commitment to the protection of the oceans, the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco is still one of the Principality’s main sources of attraction.
Patronage, the foundation of this association, is above all a question of common values and of the meaning given to action: it allows the provision of networks, relationships, and the sharing of know-how that are mutually nourishing and reinforcing.
AAMOM brings the expertise of each of its members to the Museum in order to enhance its influence and attractiveness, which also benefits the Institute as a whole.
The association is also internationally oriented: the members of its Board of Directors alone represent more than 10 different nationalities. This mix is a richness that allows it to develop support and generosity at the international level.
A WORD FROM HIS MAJESTY PRINCE ALBERT II OF MONACO
“I am delighted with the initiative and the creation of the Association of Friends of the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco.
The Oceanographic Museum needs an association that brings together people from a wide range of backgrounds to mobilize energies and provide major support to this institution. This involvement of the greatest number of people and of civil society is essential to fulfil our mediation mission.
I hope that the association, of which I am Honorary President, will enable all those who share a love of the oceans to contribute to the influence of our Museum and thereby share the Principality of Monaco’s commitment.
