Espaces22: A new Archeological Museum in Audun-le-Tiche
Opened in July 2021 in a converted former Protestant church, the new Archeological Museum of Audun-le-Tiche presents the collections of the Pays-Haut of the Moselle. Here you can find the most beautiful pieces found in the excavation of the Merovingian necropolis of Audun-le-Tiche (classified as a historical monument), as well as a remarkable collection of Gallo-Roman statues (heads of Minerva and Sirona, Jupiter astride an anguiped, Apollo etc). Finally, you can admire a unique piece that has a powerful symbolism: a Latin cross pattée, or ‘footed’ cross, itself on the register of historical monuments. With an exhibition of more than 300 sq m extending over six rooms, including a film-screening, you can travel through the ages from the Palaeolithic period up until the witch trials of the 16th century, or again the founding of the famous Boch porcelain factory at Audun-le-Tiche in 1748, a company that is today more than 250 years old and which is better known under the name Villeroy & Boch. Finally, on the top floor, a temporary exhibition invites you to explore the theme of our great cross-border region, from its origins to the present day.
