Open on Sundays and we went mid July with no real crowd at all , very relaxed atmosphere . Of course lesser scale than Paris but still has some architectural aspects that we found interesting . Exhibits are not permanent so it's a luck of the draw for individual taste . Not expensive I believe about 15. Euro . Ample parking about a 5 minute walk . Nice mall the Muse and lots of restaurants very near by .
Just the best museum experience. Go, do not hesitate. So great!
As this is a provincial offshoot of the main museum in Paris, there's no permanent collection and the enjoyment you'll take from visiting will depend on the temporary exhibitions taking place. I'm not a huge fan of modern art, but always find something interesting while visiting. The building itself is very beautiful and well worth a visit, even if not into modern art. Tickets are free for those lucky enough to be under 26 and range from €7 to €12 for others depending on how many exhibits are open. If living in the area, get an annual ticket for €37 valid for two persons.
Lives up to its name: fascinating architecture, and carefully curated exhibitions of high quality. A must-see if you like art and visit Metz!
Nice building to view with the lovely organic form but the building is small inside and only a few galleries.
