Due to have reopened after extensive renovations by the time you're reading this, the Parisian Mint Museum traces the history of French coinage from antiquity onwards, with displays that help to bring to life this otherwise niche subject. It’s housed in the 18th-century royal mint, the Monnaie de Paris, which is still used by the Ministry of Finance to produce commemorative medals and coins.

The overhaul of this sumptuous neoclassical building with one of the longest facades on the Seine will incorporate interior streets, the restoration of an aristocratic town house built by Jules Hardouin Mansart in 1690, and triple-Michelin-starred chef Guy Savoy’s flagship restaurant as well as his casual courtyard brasserie, the Métal café.
