Musee de la Monnaie Tours

35 Reviews
Housed in the Palais Conti, the neoclassical eighteenth century royal mint building, the Musee de la Monnaie traces the history of global and French coinage from its pre-Roman roots through modern times. The Monnaie de Paris, the royal mint, was founded in 864, making it one of the longest standing institutions in the country. While the mint was moved to a different location in 1973, the Monnaie de Paris still produces limited edition coins, medals, weights and measures within the Palais Conti.

Currently undergoing major renovations, the museum is slated to feature interactive exhibits, hands-on machinery, a workshop where visitors can watch artisans at work and a collection of some 140,000 objects, 20 percent of which are coins. The upgraded space will also include a Zen garden, concept store and two restaurants (a flagship and a brasserie) by Michelin-starred chef Guy Savoy. Rotating exhibitions highlight some of the biggest names in contemporary art.
