Museums of Metz

The Museum of Metz (Musée de la Cour d'Or - Metz Métropole), in Metz, France, was founded in 1839. It is a labyrinthal organization of rooms, incorporating the ancient Petites Carmes Abbey, the Chèvremont granary, and the Trinitaires church. The institution is organized into four broad sections: the history and archeological museum, containing rich collections of Gallo-Roman finds — extension works to the museums in the 1930s revealed the vestiges of Gallo-Roman baths; the medieval department; the museum of architecture; the museum of fine arts.
