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.
This museum was amazing!!! What an unexpected delight. If you are in Metz, I highly recommend setting aside plenty of time to explore this incredible installation. My family and I stopped by this Spring on a lark and are so happy that we did. The museum is easy to navigate (numbers on the floor & directional arrows), helpful and knowledgeable staff who were very friendly and offered plenty of tips (even though our French is not very good). You can get an idea of Metz from Gallo- Roman times through medieval and continue through a beautiful gallery of paintings. All in all a very well presented collection and free of charge! What a gift. We will certainly visit again the next time we are in Metz. I highly recommend this museum!
