The Hotel Dieu (literally God's "hotel" or 'house") is a very interesting and historical site/museum, especially as it shows medical treatment in days gone by. Be sure to listen to the audio guide, and press on the blue button twice after the main part to hear more detailed information (which I found actually more interesting than the main parts). The...

Loved the tour. Such kindness for terminally ill people at such an early age. Roof is amazing. Church bells provided a treat to the ears.

How good it is to get Audio Guides included in the price of admission. The guides were very good as was the whole experience. The building is amazing as is the history. Budget on say 1 hour min to do the entire tour and take your camera. Worth the entry fee.

If you can afford a private guide, you should reserve your visit and ask to have Annie as your guide. Her English is excellent and so is her sense of humor. As you visit this gem which used to be a hospital, you will be able to see medical instruments dating back to the 15th century, the pharmacy with its... More

This place is easy not to go to. The 15th century hospital is very imposing; It is hard to think that once upon a time this used to be a hospital. We really enjoyed our time in Beaune and the iconic Hotel Dieu is not to be missed.

It was the 1st Musee de l'Hotel-Dieu that I visited in Europe and I wasn't disappointed. Beautifully done. Gave you a feeling that you were there during its hay day. It was a highlight of my visit to Beaune. Suggest to see.

this is one of the most important pictures in the history of art. For lovers of early Dutch and Flemish Art it is an absolute must see.

The Hotel-Dieu is well worth a visit. Having lived in Europe for years I have become a bit jaded about sightseeing. I liked the Hotel-Dieu because it was so different. It was like a hospital inside a church. To me the best part about Burgundy is the food and the wine but if you want to feel virtuous and see... More
