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.

An unusual exhibit in a remodeled church. We visited it after spending some time in the Rouen art museum.

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,...More
