  • Superb setting (former Church) for the development of very many metalwork objects. Very beautiful exposed achievements both on the ground floor in the stands of the 1st floor. Virtually all the building trades needed instruments or forged tools or other are wonderfully represented. The sul regret not seeing a craftsman at work... Besides this original Museum is free.

  • Very well put objects in value in a magnificent site. The museums of Rouen are now free: this should encourage tourists and the Rouennais to frequent their beautiful and interesting museums. The ironwork collection is impressive.

  • This museum is also referred to as 'Museum of ironwork', and the exhibits are exceptional. It lacks a few explanations, but to each object, or almost, I wondered how we could achieve such a level of beauty. I loved this museum changing paintings or sculptures but which is a place of art and history. You guessed it, I recommend it highly and well before the Museum of fine arts.

  • 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
