  • 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.
  • Can't wait to go back when the renovation is complete in 2017, right now most of the museum is closed.
  • It has nice paintings and sculptures but nothing ultra special, you can go for free onnone day the first week of each month , i can remember it
  • 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.
