There is much to love about this free museum, and Dijon has invested just as much love into curating, displaying, preserving, and protecting these treasures. There are many interesting works that you won't see at even the finest museums. It is commonly held to be the second most important museum in France to the Louvre, and I don't doubt it... More

The building is a former palace but now a gallery. A few rooms inside are maintained in a historical splendor but much of the building itself is quite dull on the inside. The first floor is best. As for the artwork there are some nice French historical pieces but nothing especially unique. There's a small Egypt section and a modern... More

walked through on a cold day. It was very interesting and naturally very religious. Large number of tourists walking through and you need to take the time to pause and consider what you are seeing - particularly as everything is only in French. Recommend reading about the Dukes before you visit. Museums in Dijon are free.

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.
