The Musee de l'Hotel-Dieu is definitely worth a visit. We were travelling on the Scenic Sapphire and, while docked at Chalon-Sur-Saone, we had the opportunity to visit Beaune. The Hotel-Dieu was absolutely stunning - such an interesting place, both in terms of its historical origin and its fascinating architecture. Founded as a hospice for the poor in 1443, it would...

This is a must see when in Beaune. There are very nice exhibits inside. Be sure to take a picture of the classic roof.

This was the highlight of our stay in Beaune. The restoration of this 15th century hospital and the stories about medical treatment at that time were amazing. Great attention to detail in the museum give you insight into how the nuns cared for each patient. It truly was a "palace for the poor" where everyone was treated to the best... More

We were fortunate to be on a guided tour of l'Hotel Dieu from the river cruise ship MS A-Rosa Stella docked in Chalon-sue-Saone. Sadly the weather was horrendous but this place with its dazzling roves stood out in the rain. We very much enjoyed our time there, the wards have been realistically re-created to portray what life must have been... More

This historic building is a must to visit in Beaune. Small charge to enter with included audio guide that helped to make the visit very worthwhile. The inner courtyard roof tiles are beautiful.

We were moved by art and the accommodations for the patients. It was an amazing place. There was a lot to see including a pharmacy with time period equipment, a beautiful chapel, amazing paintings and tapestries. As Americans, we are always in awe to see buildings that are often older than our country!

Free electronic guide, so no extra cash to lay out. The place itself is very interesting, but the roof architecture is what stands out.

This historic site was very interesting and very well presented. The complimentary audioguide (with paid admission) really helped to understand the site, and it gave you the flexibility to view the site at your own pace.

Wonderful history lesson--not to be missed if you travel to Beaune. Amazing that it served as hospital until 1971. Tapestries near end of tour are not to be missed.
