  • Very nice, Museum "no-brainer" which makes it easy to not see that part of the exhibitions: possibility to stay there 10 min a day, 15 overnight...

  • This museum to him alone is worth a visit to Dijon. the highlight of it is the room of the tombs of the Dukes of Burgundy 2 (but Philippe the bold is all alone, yet he had been married; he was angry with his wife?). These are outstanding, incredibly rich. The rest of the Museum, that can still be seen because of the work, is also very interesting; You can see address of all beauty, more related to lace than to sculpture; the section in the middle ages is still in place. the Museum is free.

  • The Museum is currently under construction which significantly shortened the visit. Open (past medieval bourguignon) part is still pretty with the impressive tombs of the Dukes of Burgundy and a beautiful iconography. The rooms are beautiful and pleasant combining wood and stone.

  • 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.
