  • The Museum is under construction at the moment, the visit is obviously disappointing... it is better to wait...

  • A museum to visit, works that we see rarely elsewhere; and it's free! Each visit to Dijon, we never miss a ride in this remarkable place, to see something every time. I love the big sculptures in marble, if we have the chance to see the morning sun, it's gorgeous!

  • 14 rooms all wonderful, we stayed speechless in front of these pretty things, as well as the history of this Museum, and all this is free.

  • They don't have any fantastic, super-star attractions, but what they have is well-presented and very representative of various medieval artistic styles. I love the iconography of the period. The large tapestries, stained glass, and suits of armor are particularly engaging. Entrance is free, so it's well worth a visit--and I bet that even if you intend to stop in for just ten minutes, you'll wind up staying for at least an hour.
  • Free museums are always a bonus! Was in town for one night and stumbled across this museum while out walking. It is well worth an hour plus visit to take it in. There is some renovation going on so maybe some of it is closed, I'm not quite sure.
  • I thought this museum was even better, however, it is a nice building and I am sure that it will be much better after its complete renewal works.
  • A museum of fine arts opened in 1787 in Dijon, housed in the Palace of the Dukes of Burgundy. Visit for the collections, for the building, for the historic center of Dijon.
  • I made the quickest rounds through here because unfortunately I ran out of time but the art is impressive and often very highly detailed and it's free which is always great.
