We would highly recommend a visit to the Joan of Arc Museum, as she was such an important figure in French history and Rouen is so closely linked to her story. We would also recommend a visit to Monet's Gardens in nearby Giverny, as these inspired so many of his most famous works of art.
Yes, there are a number of free things to do in Rouen. We would recommend the Jardin des Plantes, which was first established in the 17th century and is a great choice for a relaxed visit. And, of course, you must visit Rouen's famous cathedral, which is famous for its three towers, all built in different styles.
