This is a small but surprising well curated museum, which is interesting if you are looking to learn a bit about the history of Dijon. The tombs of the Dukes of Burgandy are especially interesting to see.

A most interesting and wide ranging collection of beautiful art works, from Egyptian through to contemporary art. It's still partly under refurbishment, which may explain why we found it confusing accessing the various wings using different staircases. Definitely worth persisting though, as the medieval collection has some stunning pieces. We particularly loved the sculptures of Francois Pompon - such fabulous... More

The huge works of art are housed in an old palace of the Duke of Burgundy. You need to be strong to be able to climb up and down the numerous stairs and also the ability to search for rooms in weird places. The best exhibit are the two tombs of John the Fearless and Phillip the Bold. Do not... More

Great display areas, and decent coverage of the history of the area. It would be of special interest to an art historian, or religious convert (Catholic). Some of the more modern art is of a low standard, but there was enough to keep our attention for a couple of hours. (See how many of the curators are dozing on a... More

It actually seems to go on and on. The only small space was the Egyptian area, and I wasn't t thee for that. The one Monet was a nice surprise. Very pleasant way to spend s no charge afternoon. Photos. Ok/ no flash.

a bit disappointing-a confusing building with challenging navigation and poor signage. Displays were tasteful, only a moderate amount of well known artists, with minor pieces

This museum was totally remodelled and opened only a year or so back. It is fascinating, has some wonderful exhibits, and employs state of the art museology to get its message across. It is a true delight to visit and should not be missed!

Excellent museum and gallery in the centre of Dijon; the newly refurbished and restored parts of the collection are hugely impressive. There is almost too much to see in one visit.

very interesting but after having visited many museums before this it felt a bit repetitive. Would still recommend going, the tombs were really neat to learn about.
