Crazy Quilt of an art museum - spectacular tombs, some fantastic paintings and some lousy ones, many original palatial rooms that appear both minficient and threadbare, and in the tower Charles Pompon's animal sculptures inclduing his iconic White Bear from the 1920s. Worth a few hour visit.

Although it's free entry, you have to start at the beginning which is a little tricky to find! I started on the ground floor which is largely 17th & 18th century monstrosities of plump cherubs, sabine women being raped, lots of whisps of gauze covering offending body parts etc. though the medieval works were interesting and the portraits of the...

There are a few exceptional pieces (like the Burgundian tombs) but generally not that interesting - too much early religous artifacts and mediocre modern art for my taste. Also the lay-out of the collection is confusing with poor signage.

we love museums but this just wasn't to our taste. primarily religious artifacts. we weren't allowed access to a special exhibition as it was reserved for groups!

There is a lot to see in this vast and beautiful old building. The tombs and detail on some of the altar pieces are incredible ... Free entry, too.

This was a lovely place to visit for a short time, especially since it is free. However, I expected more variety in the pieces.

Art, History, Free Admission. Why not? We much preferred the Owl's Trail as our favorite Dijon activity, but this museum is one of the stops on it, so unless you have a very busy/short schedule, you should very much enjoy an hour or so in here, even without much English help. We did.

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.
