  • So much rich history here. Highly recommend a tour guide to show you some on the less obvious sites and to explain the history. 1-2 hours is plenty of time to see it all.

  • Super place. Well worth an hour away from the wine in Beaune. Beautiful building and interesting displays in an old hospital. Audio guide and plan provided. Good value.
  • Historical landmark which served as the first ever hospital in the world. The place have a rich history and a nice audio guided tour. I would say this is this is the main attraction in Beaune.
  • Well worth a visit. Amazing architecture and comprehensive exhibits. The audio guide was very interesting. Visited in June, no queues!
  • Great place to visit, so many history inside…I have been there with my 11 years old son and he was also very interested, the place is very well maintained and organized, definitely a must go if you are in Beaune!
  • Very interesting and astoundingly beautiful museum which was a hospital in the early modern age. If you are anywhere near Beaune, this is certainly worth checking out. Cheap admission includes audio tour which is available in many languages. Great trip through 16th-18th century history.
