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.

This art museum is set inside the Ducal Palace. It contains art from various periods but I was mainly interested in the mediaeval objects which are truly amazing. It is free to enter the ducal palace and the gallery sections. There is also a nice cafe-restaurant.

It was a surprise that the entrance was free. The visitors were taken to different periods of key events in France. It was well explained and structured. It's a truly surprise to discover the rest of the museum.

Wonderful permanent exhibits, especially the tombs of the Duke and Duchess. The exterior is almost as worth seeing as the inside as it was the Dukes Palace before becoming a museum. Not as thrilled by the contemporary temporary exhibit. A great way to spend a few hours or the day.

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
