The geometry of space‐time is determined by physical measurements made with clocks and rulers. In so far as these are physical systems, the ultimate accuracy achievable is determined by quantum mechanics. In this paper we use methods from quantum parameter estimation theory to obtain uncertainty principles constraining how well we can estimate the components of a metric tensor using quantum field states propagating in curved space‐time, which is treated entirely classically.
