Quiet museum, complicated lay-out, very beautiful art. Saw some exceptional pieces: mostly paintings, not necessarily the most known artists, but that makes it even more attractive. Thy ahem a great cafeteria.Excellent located in the center of the town.

Great collection! We thoroughly enjoyed the medieval works. We were pleasantly surprised by the modern collection. But we came to see the duke's tombs with high expectations and we were not disappointed. We were traveling with small children. The museum has a handy and modern elevator, bag storage, and employees who are kind and very helpful. A stroller was no... More

High quality medieval art is well represented but there is a very worthwhile collection of moderns as well. The modern section can be a little tricky to find and this section is closed over lunchtime.

Stopped off to have a look while on the Owl trail. Seeing some of the inside of the Ducal Palace was part of the attraction as well as an extensive exhibition of art. Due to time, I targeted the old Flemish masters and similar style artist. The tombs of some of the dukes are also here.

Dijon's municipal art gallery has to be seen to be believed, and eclipses many national collections the world over. Pre-Renaissance art may not be everyone's cup of tea, but the works assembled here take your breath away and look as if they were painted yesterday thanks to fastidious cleaning. Then there is the building itself, shiny and new, and housed... More

There are two sections of this fine arts museum, located in the former noble residence of 'Philip, the Good Duke of Burgundy' built around 1450. The Medieval and Renaissance collections are in the 14 rooms renovated between 2008 and 2013 and this is an absolute knock-out exhibition of wonderfully restored ancient artworks set in a stunning contemporary environment. This is... More

Even if the Middle Ages is not your thing you must go and check out this recently restored establishment. Apart from having a wide and varied art collection from the beginning to now the building itself is a pleasure to explore. And when it is over 30°C outside, I mean a real pleasure...

Recently renovated, the new part shows/trace the history of Burgundy and the "Dukes" (1400-1900). Other smaller parts show paintings (18-19teen century) and Egyptian artifacts. Located next to the Mairie, it is free entrance. It is worth the 1h-1h30 you will spent if you have interest in history of the North of Europe.

The museum has been totally renovated and has a wonderful collection of art works while the Burgundy Dukes where among the most powerful people. The tumbs are outstanding with numerous small statues. Norbert
