Part of the attraction is the palace itself but there's lots to see here. Highlights for me were the gloriously over-the-top grave of the Dukes of Burgundy, the medieval paintings, the Egyptian room and some of the 18th and 19th century sculptures. The modern section is less successful.

I was pleasantly surprised to find such a beautiful museum free of charge. We opted for the audio tour but that was just a small fee.

Its big and will even bigger in the future. The building is already worthwhile from itself. Exhibits change regularly. Admission is free!

As well as free entry you are provided with a useful visitor's guide to help you around the museum. This really is an excellent museum with interesting art and exhibits from the middle ages and 16th century history of the area. The building has large windows looking over Dijon which provides a good vantage point for viewing other interesting architecture... More

The museum is in the chateau of the Dukes of Burgundy. They have done a great renovation and are contining with the work. The museum has a great collection of religeous art and a smaller collection of arms and armour. And best of all, admission is free. Don't forget to visit the room where the kitchens were. And if you... More

This is my favorite art museum in the world. Just really impressive. As a plus, not nearly as crowded as the more famous places in paris, London, etc.

A traveler to France expects fine museums in Paris. They are all world class. But, the Musee des Beaux-Arts de Dijon stands head and shoulders with the best in France. It is worth a trip to Dijon alone, however the city has so many excellent things to recommend it. I think I could easily have spent an entire week or... More

Make sure you give yourself about 2 hours to see this museum. The displays and art work are wonderful and everything is also in English. Besides the art collection, which we could not finish seeing, the museum is a beautiful building. We bought the audiotape which is great and fills in a lot of the history of the building as... More

This museum in the old palace of the Dukes of Burgundy is the highlight of the history of Dijon. Most memorable are the tombs of 2 of the famous and powerful dukes who ruled Burgundy at a time that Belgium and most of the Netherlands were part of the duchy. The works of art are extensive and amazingly well preserved.... More
