Arts et Métiers 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.
