1 place du Général Catroux - 75017 Paris

Porte Maillot - Monceau - 17e Arrondissement


Citéco is a Parisian cultural and educational center, unique in Europe, which aims to make the economy accessible to all. We discover that the economy is part of everyday life. Games, manipulations, images, fun and eclectic experiences, with humor and pedagogy, reveal the underneath of this particularly rich and little-known subject. A rich program consisting of evening events, workshops, conferences and thematic mediations is set up there to approach the economy together and in an interactive way. The museum is housed in a magnificent neo-Renaissance mansion, which became a branch of the French bank before changing into the Cité de l’Économie.
