Musee d'Art Sacre, Dijon
(3.8/5 based on 30+ reviews on the web)
The Musée d'art sacré de Dijon is a municipal museum of Catholic Burgundian sacred art inaugurated in 1980 by Canon Jean Marilier in the Église Sainte-Anne of Dijon. It is labeled "Musée de France" and was associated in 1993 with the Musée de la Vie Bourguignonne Perrin Puycousin located in the nearby monastery. In 1950, the city of Dijon bought the Église Sainte-Anne located at the 17 rue Sainte-Anne to house the museum in 1979. It exhibits sculptures, paintings, furniture, objects of Catholic worship and many relics which the Church abandons the use in various religious reforms. In the grandstands there is a large collection of religious clothing, mainly of the 19th and 20th centuries. The museum gathers liturgical objects of the 12th to the 19th century used for Catholic worship, and shows the lives of communities of women belonging to various spiritual families. The are many works by Jean-Baptiste Bouchardon.

  • This ancient chapel is located on the "route of the OWL". What definitely stands out, outside of the sculptures and paintings, the chalices room. While the people of those times the clergymen lived in an enormous wealth.

  • Interesting, free Museum and which seems fairly unknown to the Dijon themselves. The place is worth for the collection but also and perhaps especially for the building: a beautiful church with cupola situated near a convent that is now the Museum of Burgundy life. We feel in this type of place which city could be Dijon in the Ancien Régime, which is full of churches and convents.
