"La Cour D'Or" Musee de la La Cour D'Or - Museum Tip by Airpunk

  La Cour D'Or
by Airpunk

These buildings form Metz most important museum complex. Three museums (architecture, archaeology and fine arts) are housed in these buildings which are from 1932. The spot was chosen after Roman Ruins were discovered in the old town of Metz. The museum does not serve only as an exhibition point for the Roman remains, but also a a base for further excavations and researches. The name Cour D'Or does not have any historic meaning. It just comes from the typical gold-coloured Jaumont Stone which is used for many buildings in Metz.

Address: 2 Rue du Haut Poirier, Metz
Directions: From the Cethdral, just go along the Rue du Chanoine Collin (which starts northeast of the Cathedral, just behind the tourist office). The Museum is just a short walk a way at the intersection Rue Collin / Rue du Haut Poirier.
