The Principality’s coin and stamp office has issued a new stamp to mark the Polar Mission exhibition at the Oceanographic Museum that opens on June 4.

The Museum’s exhibition offers an immersion into the heart of the Arctic and Antarctic giving visitors the opportunity to meet the great explorers who 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 HSH Prince Albert II, today, have made these extreme territories part of Monaco’s DNA.
