  • The museum is totally satisfactory and the audio tour is well done. But compared to the world class museums in Paris it has a lot to live up to.
  • A very interesting and an important historical place. Free audio guides gives you the opportunity to wander through this place at your on speed.
  • beautifully restored and maintained. Stunning tiled Burgundian roof. Absolute must to see
  • I visited the museum with a friend who is a medical student, and she absolutely loved seeing the old medical tools, hospital beds, etc. I personally thought the architecture and style of buildings was worth the visit :-)
  • Very interesting museum, and a great piece of history. Definitely worth a visit when you're in Beaune.
