One of the best museums in Metz! The entrance fee is free and it was quite empty even on the weekend 1-2 weeks before the peak Christmas season! It takes minimum 1h30 to look around each floor. Starting with the Roman baths, history of Metz, beaux-arts are nice to discover this city.
Very nice Museum. Some parts have been refurbished. We had a great guide for our visit.
