A great visit for all those who love history and art. Parts of the building itself are of historical importance, and there are many treasures on display. The Museum has recently been modernised, so that access is easier (there is a lift now), and the staff are generally very helpful.

This museum is a great example of the French Musee Beaux Arts tradition. It has a wonderful collection of magnificent medieval Burgundian art and sculpture but with many other treasures to. And the setting - the Dukes Palace - combines the modern with the traditional very effectively. The only downside for an ignorant Englishman is that none of the information... More

Beautiful spacious museum in the former ducal palace. Tombs, altarpieces, and building architecture were highlights.

There is much to love about this free museum, and Dijon has invested just as much love into curating, displaying, preserving, and protecting these treasures. There are many interesting works that you won't see at even the finest museums. It is commonly held to be the second most important museum in France to the Louvre, and I don't doubt it... More

The building is a former palace but now a gallery. A few rooms inside are maintained in a historical splendor but much of the building itself is quite dull on the inside. The first floor is best. As for the artwork there are some nice French historical pieces but nothing especially unique. There's a small Egypt section and a modern... More

walked through on a cold day. It was very interesting and naturally very religious. Large number of tourists walking through and you need to take the time to pause and consider what you are seeing - particularly as everything is only in French. Recommend reading about the Dukes before you visit. Museums in Dijon are free.

We tried to visit on a Tuesday but the Museum was closed. So one of us (the one not working) returned on the Wednesday. The art works are magnificent and worth dwelling on. The main problem was the signage and finding out what was where. Nevertheless, it was a pleasing experience and well worth the ZERO entrance cost. Dijon does... More

very cool stuff, well presented even for someone who doesn't really enjoy museums much. Coffins of dead ducs are impressive.
