The usual national museum with ruins and historical relics. The walk-through is not the best and the architecture of the space is ok. Nothing memorable or not seen before. The highlight was the circus installation. That space was fun and well done.
It was a very pleasing surprise. We went in, not expecting too much of it, but it is a nice and pretty place. It's much bigger than you think, and there's is soo much to explore. There is always Staff around every corner, so if you have any Questions (and speak french) you can always ask them. They are all well informed. Almost every single sign is written in French, English and German, so you don't need to worry about that. I definitely recommend this to anyone who is in Metz. Also, because its admission free so you don't need to worry about "wasting" too much money.
