We came across this museum on a day-trip to Rouen. What a find! It has a wealth of beautiful everyday objects, many dating from the fifteenth or sixteenth centuries. They give a very original insight into life in ages gone by.

Fabulous exhibition of art, technology and industry in iron. A quick look at the website will show all. Perhaps a pity that the word iron (F fer) isn't in the title as that would attract so much more attention.

This museum is a blast. The Museum of Iron Works is housed in a former Gothic church behind the Musee des Beaux-Arts about halfway between the center of town and the train station. The sign outside (made of metal, of course) is in French (“Musee...More
