This is a one-of-a-kind museum, in a beautiful church filled with interesting metal works and tools. I was surprisingly fascinated by the look at daily life in generations past - seeing the tools people used to lock doors, cook, do surgery, etc. It's a cool way to look at history. Quick, convenient, free - give it a look.

Small museum about cast iron in a former church
Jul 2019
The setting of this church in a former museum is pretty nice, and as one can go upstairs, to where the organ used to be, it means one also gets a goor overview of some of the larger pieces, and the museum as a whole. The museum, at least the space, is rather small, but within there are objects from the Roman times till the 19th century. Lots of keys, but all sorts of household goods, as well as shop sign posts. Little information, but for most items that is also not necessary. As noted before, this is one of the free museums in Rouen.

This museum is relatively small but worth a visit. We spent only about 30 minutes there but pleased that we stopped by.

Very Unique

While nothing is stunning in this museum it's still worth a visit. Rather small, it will only take a half hour to an hour of your time and worth a visit since it's right behind the main museum in Rouen. The fact that everything is iron, wrought and otherwise gives this a very unusual theme and anyone should find something that catches his/her fancy.

Not your average art museum...
Jun 2019 • Couples
Just behind the Beaux-Art museum you'll find something very special: a museum entirely dedicated to various artistic expressions in wrought iron. Never seen this anywhere else (but it probably exists elsewhere). The building istself adds to the oddity of the museum: it is housed in a former church from the 14th century...

Very special place and if you visit the Beaux-Art, take half an hour extra for this cool place!

A hidden gem in Rouen
Jun 2019 • Solo
This is an extremely interesting and original museum - it has an amazing collection of every kind of metal work, from keys and locks to kitchen tools, arms and jewelry. And the space is just perfect - a gothic church.

such a great little gem of a museum
Apr 2019 • Family
this is behind the Beaux Arts Museum and since it doesn't say "WROUGHT IRON" but rather "Musee Secq des Tournelles" it was a bit hard to find. But we did and are so glad for it. has so many interesting items forged out of iron. All the different cork screws!! (and the medical equipment - ugh). You can tour it in less than an hour -the old church it is in is beautiful too.

Amazing Collection
Apr 2019 • Family
Make time for this fun and quirky collection. Just watch for the specific hours. We were in the area, but too early, glad we made the time to come back. Many beautiful items. Super cool idea to house in the old church. Also fun because it is free. No bathroom,

A fantastic small museum
Apr 2019 • Couples
This museum in an old gothic church is a great way to escape the pedestrian traffic of the town center for an hour or so. It's contents are different from other museums and it really has something for everyone, from old locks, coffee grinders, surgical saws, etc. to more modern metal dresses worn in movies. It's a place where you can easily get wrapped up. My only complaint is that everything is in French, but since the purpose of most of the objects is evident it's not that big of a problem big problem. As I said, it's definitely worth a visit. My only caveat is that it has limited days and hours that it is open, so check that out beforehand. You can get that info online or from the tourist brochures. Another plus is that there is no entrance fee.
