  • It would take hours to find out, the collection is impressive and remarkable, in a beautiful place. We regretted that the explanations are not present on all exposed areas, be dated in terms of Visual communication. The signage in the Museum date and asked to be updated. Some shop windows lighting would be a plus. No video is proposed to better appreciate some techniques, it's a shame. However the sound installation takes really ears and becomes infuriating. A youthful look and all will take new weapons.

  • This is a museum that seems small and or take time if you want to see everything. The collection is varied and very nice framework. See again and again.

  • 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
