MUNICIPAL MUSEUM LA MONNAYE
Petit Futé's opinion on MUNICIPAL MUSEUM LA MONNAYE
This architectural ensemble is one of the witnesses to the cultural and historical heritage of this small town. Before making a museum, we were fighting the currency here until the th century. Hence its name, but also exhibition numismatics, bequest of Mr. François Quatrehomme, to which the museum also owes archaeological, paleontological and numismatics collections. The town of Meung is also very attached to Gaston Cost, a native libertarian poet from Beaugency and who lived in Meung. This literary component is extended by an exhibition of rare works of authors also linked to the city, notably Jehan de Meung - which prolongs the Rose de la Rose, whose first part is Guillaume de Lorris, another famous author of the department - but also François Villon and, more unexpected, Alexandre Dumas, whose first pages of the Three Musketeers have the city of Meung. The works exhibited were acquired by the City in respect of literary heritage.
