I was told twice about this museum and how interesting it was, but couldn't think of anything more boring than a pile of wrought iron. When I was told about it a third time, I decided to go. How wrong was I!! It's brilliant! Housed...More

Rouen is my hometown, but I never bothered to check the local museums. Had I continued on this path, I would have missed this hidden gem. The museum is inside of a church, that alone is worth the visit. To top it off, the items...More

This museum is near the Musee de Beaux-Arts, in an old church. They cleverly created a second story with views over the nave, so the visitor gets a great view of the hanging ironwork signs. The entry fee is modest, but the medieval locks, signs...More

We stumbled on this by accident and it was closing in 30 minutes so we whizzed round but it was an amazing collection of ironware. I particularly liked the old shop signs and intricate locks and keys.

What a fantastic place, not just locks and keys but absoultly anything that can be made from wrought iron. The locks are truly inticate, they must have taken an age to make and cost a fortune. The only downside is the resticted visiting times and...More

Like a few other travellers we stumbled upon this unique museum while meandering around the streets of old Rouen. Set out in an old (very) church. A great collection of pre industrial age iron goods of all sorts. Balustrades, decorative masks, jewellery, tools, weaponry, keys,...More
