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

We were surprised there was no fee for admission to one of the oldest museums in France. Be sure to set aside at least 2 hours (at fast pace) to see the 3 floors . The Tombs of the Dukes of Burgundy were very impressive. Every floor had a different collection of art. All worth seeing.

This has already been a museums which presentes great art works. But befor the renovaton everything had been presented so odd and old fashioned. Now the light is very bright and the colour of the walls are very well chosen for the art. Besides the information about the ducs de Bourgogne and their importance in the Middle Ages is very... More

Honestly, I was a little confused with this one. No charge to get in, yes! Charge for the audio guide, no problem! Could not follow the audio guide for the life of me. It was telling me about paintings I couldn't find, in rooms that I couldn't find. It also mentions a little bit about the palace but there has... More

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
