Arts et Métiers (French pronunciation: [aʁz‿e metje], literally Arts and Crafts) is a station of the Paris Métro, serving Line 3 and Line 11. It takes its name from the Musée des Arts et Métiers, which is served by the station. It opened on 19 October 1904 as part of the first section of line 3 opened between Père Lachaise and Villiers. The line 11 platforms opened as part of the original section of the line from Châtelet to Porte des Lilas on 28 April 1935.
To mark the bicentenary of the Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers in 1994, the station was redesigned by Belgian comics artist François Schuiten in a steampunk style reminiscent of the science fiction works of Jules Verne.
