  • This museum is located on the beautiful square of Liberation. Being currently in work we could not discover all of the collections, (only the middle ages part), but it was a beautiful and rich collection. The staff is nice. The exterior of the building is a must.

  • 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.
