  • This monument is really beautiful, and the individual audio guide helps to understand the history of the place. However, out of the visit, we only were not more informed on who are the Hospices de Beaune today (association? State? private?...) the Hôtel-Dieu is one of the elements of its heritage...

  • Museum used to be an charity hospital. Famous for auction held once a year from the 1859. #LocalGuides
  • This place is really interesting. A middle age hospital well conserved and a beautiful building also. A must see if you have the chance to come here. Also the opening times are wide, from 9 to 19:30 during the summer
  • Amazing history of noble man who build thus magnificent place to take care of poor sick people. Well organized and rich. You need about two hours to absorb all information
  • The original hospital building, the Hôtel-Dieu, in the centre of Beaune, is one of the finest examples of French fifteenth-century architecture, and is now a must-visit museum with world-class artworks. It is also a beautiful piece of design, with a patterned glazed-tile roof so typical of Burgundy only seen from the inner courtyard. Marauding bands that once roamed the countryside only saw a plainer exterior, not the splendour that lay within.
  • Excellent museum. It was hundreds of years ahead of its time. The architecture is very interesting as well.
