  • Still a "nugget dijonnaise" free! Located in a former convent (beautiful place), this museum is full of little treasures! The lower level is devoted to a Museum of wax with the costumed characters (primarily nineteenth) and the reconstitution of a Burgundy Interior, which is fairly regularly in many regional museums... But the highlight of the tour is located at level 1 with restoring meticulous and superb shops in the late nineteenth / early twentieth (of the Pharmacy at the grocery store, passing by the watchmaker, the butcher...) It's just beautiful! Then the rooms reveal the industrial wealth of Dijon (mustard of race and Pernot biscuit...); In short, Museum where it would be lost hours, large and small! Not to be missed in Dijon.

  • An original Museum of Burgundian life. Many windows with superb re-enactments of scenes from daily life. The shopping windows of the street are enticing and talking to everyone. Very well also on the presentation of local products.

  • Museum very interesting because we have a complete panorama of old productions of Burgundy. Linger on the mustard part the flagship of Dijon and reconstituted old shops. Very interressanr, you will be surprised.

  • Surprisingly interesting museum. Reconstructed stores from 19th century Dijon.
  • Museum very interesting, we learn a lot of thing on Dijon and Burgundy. A good collection and beautifully restored shops. Hat!

  • A museum that deserves to be known, including by the Dijon themselves that somewhat seem to ignore it. Located in a former convent, the first floor is particularly interesting. There are replicas of old stores of Dijon, Dijon former plans, explanations about the origin of mustard in Dijon and some other stuff yet. History lovers will be happy.

  • The Museum is wonderful. Traders Gallery is must-see

  • The Museum staff is not at the height. We have followed by two associate of the Museum in the exhibition on the war 14-18, who were telling all their family problems in a very loud voice. This is unacceptable!
