Set in the ducal palace, this museum has a fantastic exhibition devoted to the history of Burgundy and its dukes. Includes many electronic touch screens, with several geared towards children (games for them to play). And it's free!

The museum exterior is wonderful to see the beauty, size, and decor. Inside the museum has an array of art and artifacts well worth a visit.

The museum is situated in the Ducal Palace, which in itself makes it work a visit. In some of the galleries on the lower floors the decor is intact and you can get a sense for the grandeur of the time. Which makes it more interesting than your average art gallery. I don't know much about art, but enjoyed wandering... More

I liked the ease of access. Sligthly disapointed by the great number of things not from Dijon. The building itself is nice outside, but the inside is more modern. I had hoped to find more of the original building. Guess I had not read about it before.

This museum is light and airy throughout the many and varied rooms. Perfect on a rainy grey day. Many of the notices are also in English. I spent a leisurely couple of hours enjoying the variety of masterpieces and artefacts on display. Photographs are allowed only without the use of Flash. In one of the rooms I noticed a little...

We found this a really interesting museum with different parts to it that suit a wide range of tastes. If you want to see Italian Renaissance art, no problem. Egyptian artifacts? Old grand rooms of the palace? All possible. Plus the fantastic tombs of a few Dukes. The overview signs are in English, German and French and extra materials are... More

You could spend hours in this museum. The tombs of the Dukes of Burgundy are masterpieces. Beautiful rooms fully furnished represent various centures in French design. Also many wonderful paintings and artifacts from many eras, as well as church relics.

The museum is very well done, and very interesting. Information is presented in a logical fashion, with accompanying information. There is information in English, but some is in French only. It is an excellent visit not just for the art, but to see the residence itself. You get plenty of information about history as well as art. The day we... More

This historic place is really awesome. The architecture and refine designs are really superb especially the roof tiles. When you stand in the middle of the courtyard, you will feel as if you were transported to the medieval time.

If you like looking at a load of paintings by artists you've never heard of then this museum is for you! There is one room with a few impressionist paintings which for me was the only thing of interest. Sadly the museum is a bit of a maze and so is difficult to find your way around. At least it... More
