  • Museum dedicated to the ironwork with a collection impressive and very interesting to various objects of decorative and everyday life. This reminds us that the ironwork is an art in itself. The Museum is installed in a former Church, born with the gift of his collection by an individual. It is quite rare to be stressed: access is free and friendly. The objects are present. This museum ideally requires a visit without the constraint of time to really experience all the objects and information thereto.

  • It is discreet and small whatever very large in this Gothic church it is assembled the largest collection in the world of the old ironwork. you will be stunned by forms that can take the Art of ironwork. It will reveal discreetly the secret of the openings of chests and their keys, that of happiness? Who knows? but especially not one that opens "Pandora's box".

  • This free entry Museum is located in a converted Church. Virtually everything the man could invent to iron are exposed: tools of surgery at chests secrets through the keys and lighters not to mention grids and bells.

  • This museum has been founded in the beginning of the 20th century and is a very interesting museum just behind the Musée des Beaux Arts. You will discover old ironwork, from medical instruments to keys, signs and doors and many, many other interesting things.
  • Free entrance to a really neat collection! I was amazed to see some of the metal work that was possible centuries ago!
  • Worth a visit! If you are visiting the Beaux-Arts museum, come here also, it's super close
  • Discovery of this museum by chance, but it was a real discovery in a very beautiful place. Many objects, to recommend
