Founded in the 1839, the museums of Metz actually occupy the four buildings that originally belonged to the Australasian Kings. Spread over 3500sq.metres of palatial land, the museum is organized and its exhibits have been distributed such that a visitor might feel like he or she is walking through a labyrinth.

- History and archaeological museum
- The Medieval department
- The museum of Fine Arts
- Altar of the oriental God- Mithra
- Jupiter column of Merten
- Guided tours

Nice museum but not amazing. The price is very resonable.
Great Roman ruin artifacts and lots of rooms with historical ruins.
Interesting roman and galic exposition. Old roman ruins included!
Great museum highlighting the history of Metz and how it was affected by the Romans. Worth a visit if you are in the are and care about Romans, and the ancient history of Metz, otherwise, skip it.
It was interesting, but the way the objects were foreseen with light and the uncontinuous wall colours were a bit annoying. Also, there were barely any tag numbers near the artefacts for referral to object description. English translations would be very nice. :)
