Audiovisual Institute of Monaco was founded in 1997 as the Association of the Audiovisual Archives of the Principality of Monaco, and renamed to its current name in August 2018.[citation needed] In September 2020 the Institute opened to the public of Monaco nearly two years after its move to Boulevard du Jardin Exotique.[5] The new building of the Audiovisual Institute was inaugurated by Prince Albert and Princess Caroline.[citation needed]

In 2020, during the period of quarantine the Audiovisual Institute of Monaco made available some snapshots shot in 1950s and 1960s.[6]

The Audiovisual Institute of Monaco joined forces with the National Audiovisual Institute (INA) of France to expand access to its audiovisual archives via the INA mediapro platform. Almost 4,200 subjects broadcast on the “Monaco Info” channel between 1995 and 1997 are now accessible on the platform.[7]
