    Yes, the Museum is in the works, but so admission is free. And if the collections are not all visible, there are enough masterpieces to fill the visitor: it suffices to cite the tombs of the Dukes of Burgundy. Or for the amateur of more recent works, the paintings of Nicolas de Staël.

    ... but it will be even better when he's completely finished to be restored (2019). Amazing pieces such as the tombs of the Dukes or of the splendid altarpieces.

    There are some nice things to see here. Luckily it's still free because the amount of rooms are currently not many.  more »

    It's a beautiful building in the heart of Dijon, gives the history of the dukes of Dijon. Great collection of art and has some crowns. Also a nice collection of weapons and armour. It's 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.

    Delightful (and large) medieval collection.

    Can't wait to go back when the renovation is complete in 2017, right now most of the museum is closed.
