The whole of the Monnaie de Paris, of which the Palace has Unesco world heritage status, is being ‘metalmorphosed’ to become a major site for the arts & crafts professions and to make more widespread the know-how of their specific expertise. With the reopening of the 11 Conti, culture is central to this transformation. A new layout enables visitors to discover the trades of 150 artisans (that you can see carrying out their specialized work), the secrets of production, and heritage collections so far rarely shown. The latter also includes creations by designers such as Christian Lacroix and Philippe Starck. Plus, don’t miss the temporary exhibitions of contemporary art.
Surprise your guests! The Monnaie de Paris offers several exceptional spaces for private hire: the 11 Conti museum for a unique experience based on metal and French know-how; the magnificent courtyards of the Monnaie de Paris, notably the Cour de la Méridienne and the main courtyard for a reception of up to 900 people in cocktail party format; and the Cour des Remises for catering.
The establishment is now open to pedestrians and is becoming an obvious route to go from the left bank to the right bank. The site has also given a boost to its 12,000 m² surface area with the opening of the Michelin-starred restaurant Guy Savoy (available for private hire on Sunday and Monday), a Colbert Committee shop to promote arts & crafts professions, and a brewery due to open soon in one of the courtyards, as well as a 1,000 m² garden.
