A new exhibition at Monaco's Oceanographic Museum is the subject of a single stamp, reflecting the importance of the Arctic and Antarctic.
Starting June 4, 2022, the Oceanographic Museum’s new exhibition offers an immersion in the heart of the Arctic and Antarctic giving the opportunity to meet the great explorers who have ventured there, the species that have adapted to these extreme environments, the people who have chosen the Great North to live there, and the researchers who are advancing science.
The “IMMERSION” room offers 650 m² of projection space, to experience the beauty but also the fragility of the polar worlds up close.
It is because healthy poles are absolutely essential to the balance of the planet Earth that Prince Albert I, at the turn of the 19th century, and H.S.H. Prince Albert II, today, have made these extreme territories part of Monaco’s DNA.
