Jet Set Responsibly with Uber

We've teamed up with Uber so you can drink responsibly at Monte Carlo!

Uber is an app that connects you with a driver at the push of a button. Track the arrival of your ride, payment is cashless, and you’ll even receive a text message when your driver arrives.

To get a free trip up to $20 on your first Uber ride, sign up at, or download the app, and enter the promo code MCJETSET.

Utilize our galleries as a place of learning and exploration!

Our Education Department is gearing up for a new academic year with YOU in mind. Be prepared to explore contemporary art through lively conversations in the galleries, learn and contribute by becoming a Teen Advisor or an Intern, or take part in an art history seminar course—there’s something for everyone.

Here’s a sample of what you’ll find on this fall’s education menu:
