  • Ticket permits re-entry that day. Spacious and wellpresented. The free map helps a bit with layout; but you do some long walks to get to some things. Signs not always clear. Visit downstiars chapel...

  • Good museum. A walking tour of Dijon took us here. The permanent collection is free and we went to see the Tombs of the Dukes of Burgundy. Fascinating. We had to walk much of the museum to get there and deeply regretted not having the time to study the collection.
  • Great museum with a lot of Egyptian, Greek, roman and a lot more. 9 euro for adults, 5 for 18-25 so it is affordable. They do close some exhibits during lunch so check on hours prior to your visit.
  • Thought this was okay. Priced reasonably for what they have to offer. It was a bit confusing to navigate the recommended route through the building. Building itself is quite nice, and the collection I found the most interesting was the room with the different coins.
  • Stunning place I had a great visit, the pieces presented don’t have much space restriction so you can look the sculptures and painting really close! They give you a map and the rooms are numbered so you don’t get lost and it makes sure that you’ll see everything After entering, before getting into the museum itself there’s a cute little garden thing that’s is pretty atmospheric and relaxing with some sculptures sprinkled on it :)
  • A great art museum with a rich collection of paintings and sculptures. It also has interesting temporary expositions and a lovely garden with chairs to rest. I love it!
