The Museum offers you a unique interactive and sensory experience involving metal, know-how, and the heritage of Monnaie de Paris. See some of our workshops during working hours for a demonstration of the outstanding know-how and skills of our craftspeople. You will visit our foundry, our chasing and finishing workshop, and the Great Coin Mint, the heart of the mint.
On fridays between 11am and 11:30am (except during school holidays) attend the preparation and casting of art fonts in the Foundry, visible from the Museum. In front of you, our casters, dressed in aluminised overalls, make a casting of metal. Figurines, trophies ... every week new objects come out of the last art foundry in Paris. Unique experience in the heart of Paris!
The workshops take place according to the production needs of the institution which remains an operating factory. It may be possible that castings take place later than planned, their preparation requiring special security measures. Stay informed via the calendar.
