La Monnaie de Paris opens its doors to the public to reveal the 1150-year history of the last factory in operation in the heart of the capital. Its cultural, gastronomic and commercial offers make it an exceptional place that honours know-how and craftsmanship.
In the heart of historic Paris, the Monnaie de Paris is today a hybrid place where visitors can discover the tangible and intangible heritage of the oldest institution in the world.
They can admire the architecture of this neoclassical building designed in the 18th century as both a royal palace and a mint.
Its in-house museum, which was completely renovated at the end of 2017, reveals the secrets of the manufacture of coins and numerous objets d'art, the institution's heritage collections, and the centuries-old skills of the craftsmen who continue to sublimate metal within these walls.
A rich program of exhibitions, events, thematic tours and creative workshops allows visitors to approach the DNA of La Monnaie de Paris with different and always renewed approaches.
A shop selling collector's coins, art products and gifts, a café with a large sunny terrace nestled in the Cour de la Méridienne, and Guy Savoy's 3* gastronomic restaurant complete this unique offer.
Every day throughout the year between 11 am and 6 pm. Closed on Monday. Closed exceptionally on January 1st, May 1st and December 25th. Late opening on Wednesdays until 9pm.
