  • A small museum with a collection which presents a good panorama of the art of the region. Compliments to the conservative (or curator). Not to be missed.

  • Superb small museum. One complaint: I had the impression of being a thief in the eyes of the 'guide' view the way that she took my daughter and me during our visit.

  • A nice little Museum some pieces are unique I often pass for fun and for my memories of childhood (internal to Autun)

  • Friendly staff. Too bad that the narrowness of the dated parts put evil in value collections, very beautiful. Beautiful film in 3D on the Cathedral.

  • Nice museum with many beautiful artifacts and painting, spread over the different centuries that Autun already exists. Just the explanation of the tympanum of the Cathedral is super interesting.
