Definitely should go while in Beaune - it was a hospital. Rooms nicely organized and explained. Worth a visit.

This was a very interesting place to visit and a nice change from seeing churches and museums on our trip. The audioguide was a bit boring with all the dialogue, we just wanted the info. We spent about an hour on our tour, definitely worth it!

Entry includes an audio guide (there is also one specially for kids) offered in many languages which tells the history of this old hospice which was ran by nuns for several centuries. Truly impressive roofing on the outside and inside a very unique and colourful ceiling on the inside, lined with wood carvings of people and animals - very amusing!... More

Didn't know what to expect, but it was an extensive, well prepared exhibit on a long history of medical care for poor -- that started in Beaune. Really worth a visit.

Interesting and well presented history of this religious community / hospital. Beautiful and famous tiled roof visible from inner courtyard. Well worth a visit!
