This has to be one of the best value attractions in town, still only 1.5€ and so few visiting when we attended. The graffiti is almost as interesting as some of the exhibits, but the Mark Twain connection was the real surprise.

The entrance to this museum is very inexpensive, and that is a good thing since it is nothing too special. It was worth the 20 minutes we spent there. It was interesting to learn about the history of the tower, there is very little that is original, most is a reproduction. It is closed (as are most museums) from noon... More

The Tower's a nice place to learn more about Rouen's history, and the history of Joan of Arc who was murdered in the Vieux Marche. The museum is very cheap to get into, I believe it was 1.50 euro. Also, the view from the second floor is amazing.

This tower has a lot of history. To think that Jean D'arc was tortured for months in this tour ... If you like history thesis your place. Unfortunately the tour wasn't opened to the public when I went so I didn't get to see the inside but the outside it humbling enough .

Only 1.50 EUR entry (and free for students / under 18s). There isn't a great deal to see inside, but they have got some paintings and information about the tower and Joan of Arc. The top floor has been filled with concrete (to use it as a bunker in WW2) so you can't see out across the town, which is... More

... but there was not a lot to see, just 'been there, done that' sort of place - use the train, parking in Rouen is very difficult!

Memories of Rapunzel! Some good displays reached by a series of spiral stairs encased in very thick walls. Nothing special but worth half an hour.

All that remains of the castle where Jeanne d'Arc was held prisoner. It was interesting and worth a visit.

The tower is impressive even though it is a copy, Joan of Arc didn't actually stay in this one. If you're planning on going here bear in mind that it is 122 steps to the top floor of the tower. If you're in a wheelchair forget it and if you're not very fit or past your prime years this is... More

This is the place in which Jehanne d'Arc was threatened with torture. It is all that remains of the castle in which she was imprisoned at Rouen. It is a very significant piece of the history of Jehanne d'Arc and it is well-kept.
