  • Fascinating collection of iron and steel objects in an old Gothic church. Admission is free if you have visited the Rouen art museum.
  • Free and very interesting museum about metal works. The museum is inside a beautiful gothic-style Church.
  • 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

Where to stay in Rouen

If your main reason for visiting Rouen is its famous cathedral, which inspired Monet to paint dozens of canvasses, consider booking your room at a hotel in or around the city center. Despite being within walking distance of the cathedral and the river, hotels in this area provide comfort and privacy at modest prices. If you're looking to splurge and location isn't your priority, think about staying at a luxurious hotel-spa situated farther outside the city, where you can have access to heated outdoor pools.
