The production plant of Saint-Louis, a 50-meter long building surmounted by the world with the eagle, symbol of Fernet-Branca, was built at the beginning of the twentieth century, came into operation in 1909 and was shut down in July 2000.

The idea to transform the old Fernet-Branca distillery into a museum of contemporary art originated in 2003 from a joint project of the local government and the Branca family: the project was realised by architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte who considered the transfer to the future exhibition area in two stages: according to the first one, the area had to be used for exhibitions and visitors, while according to the second one the internal courtyard had to be covered with a glass window and an underground restaurant had to be built in the old wine-cellar where there the original casks are.
