Musee Secq Des Tournelles - Review
Why would anyone expect to find the world’s largest ironware collection housed in an old, if beautiful church? Not sure, but at least a brilliant collection got a brilliant location. The 8000 iron made items range from Gallo-Roman to modern times and showcase how usage of the metal evolved. The exhibitions are divided by item type: keys and locks; gates, hinges and door knockers; utensils; tools; personal apparel; sewing etc. If you weren’t expecting much, prepare to be surprised; the collection is fantastic and highly intriguing.

Musee Secq Des Tournelles , Rouen Reviews
For those interested in metal craftsmanship this is an absolute must visit Museum. The level of skill and artistic effort shown in the production of so many of the obviously hand made exhibits, is simply breathtaking. Who would have thought that 17th, 18th or 19th century locks and keys could be so elegant or so intricate? This has to be the finest collection I have ever seen. The range of exhibits on display covers something from almost all aspects of everyday life from tableware to tools or warfare to early medicine. There is something for all interests here. Best to allow yourself several hours to soak it all in. I have pictures but the lighting can be tricky. I wish I had allocated at least whole day.
Fun display. No charge to see these crafts through history including locks, medical instruments, household tools , door knockers, tabaco paraphernalia and more
Interesting place (formely a church), exhibing lots of different objects made of iron.
Beautiful, functional items of high art quality. Lot's of time and love in setting this place up and maintaining the wonderful displays and building. Thanks so much to the folks that offer these places up for our enjoyment!!!
Outstanding venue for study of iron work and steel design in Rouen.
