Monnaie de Paris is reopening after five years creating the 11 Conti-Monnaie de Paris. The France's longest standing institution and the oldest factory in the world now hosts: a new museum entirely dedicated to the heritage and the know-how of the Monnaie de Paris with over 170 000 pieces in its collection; more than 1000m2 of space for temporary exhibitions dedicated to the contemporary art; 2 restaurants, including Guy Savoy’s, nominated Table in the world in 2016; a new shop designed by Philippe Prost. 

11 Conti-Monnaie de Paris becomes accessible for free by several crossing streets. This opening gives a new way to discover and visit Paris : it is now possible to join le Louvre from l’Odéon, by crossing the inner courtyards of La Monnaie de Paris. By permitting visitors to discover this architectural master piece in the center of Paris, La Monnaie de Paris becomes an essential step in Paris landscape.

1000 m2 dedicated to contemporary art: After Tadashi Kawamata, David LaChapelle, Jean Prouvé, Marcel Broodthaers or more recently Maurizio Cattelan, the Monnaie de Paris continues to present the today’s top creative artists through exhibitions, events and also performances. From the 20th of October, the 11 Conti – Monnaie de Paris presents Women House, a collective exhibition that gathers 40 female artists of the 20th and 21st centuries and places women at the center of a history of which they were almost absent.
