i stumbled across this museum whilst in the city of Rouen, and what a - masterpiece of interesting items. its on the big list of museums in the city. there were lots of wrought iron work brackets, signs metalwork, complex and delicate metal instruments from dentistry to military to clockwork and security door locks used in castle- doors for example....

While in Rouen, try to see this eye-catching museum. It's a mind-boggling collection of ironwork in many forms. The most impressive & central display includes many interesting and historic wrought-iron signs, elaborate grilles, and even a staircase to nowhere. But there are also tools, jewelry, and watches. The museum was free the day we visited, and the staff welcoming and... More
This museum deals with the minutae of once public iron (metal) work. It is housed in a former Medieval church . When you walk in you are treated to what seems at first glance like a ecclesiastic meat locker with all the meat hooks empty. Then, upon closer inspection, you realize that the meat hooks are all signage from the... More
Dived in out of the rain but would recommend going to whatever the weather if in Rouen. A rather eclectic mix of instruments of all types over two floors and totally amazing. Free to visit.
Wasn't sure what to expect but this was great! Museum housed in old beautiful church. There are all sorts of iron works, from staircase, to signs, keys, intricate locks, and medical equipment. Well worth your time. Older children would be interested too!
What a unique museum that is worth a quick walk through. It is housed in a church and is 2 stories. There is something for everyone. A fancy lock that triggered the little pistol to shoot the person opening the lock grabbed my fancy. There are all kinds of signs, tools, medical and dental instruments, armor, etc etc. And free!!!
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.
Recently, my wife and I have been developing quite a fascination for wrought and cast iron in all its forms (gates and balconies especially). So we find the collection at Musee Le Secq des Tournelles endlessly fascinating. We visited it twice during our time in Rouen, and if I were going to Rouen tomorrow, I would put it at the... More
A very interesting ironwork museum. Well worth a visit. What you can do with fire and iron (a lot). Children love it because of the various contraptions (locks which trap or shoot at unwary robbers among other curiosities). A good rainy day activity.
