Would recommend

very interesting but after having visited many museums before this it felt a bit repetitive. Would still recommend going, the tombs were really neat to learn about.

The museum is interesting, although it should be renovated and tis collections should be concentrated online in the Middle Ages. The funerary monuments of the Dukes are awesome pieces of art, that should not be missed. They are the absolute masterpieces of this museum.

It's worth going. For the tombs, the building, the weird medieval art with a focus on death, and the very nice collection of impressionist art on the top floor. But: to hire an audio guide you must have an ID card; to hire two audio guides you must have two ID cards. A credit card won't do. It must be... More

Visit for free and see for yourself the icons of the history of Burgundy (it is a part of Dutch history too). Beautiful sacral artefacts and armoury in original surroundings.

It's a museum that truly highlights the historical relevance of the Duchy of Burgundy, usually overlooked when one thinks about French History. You get to learn how far the dukes' influence was extended in Europe. The exhibitions are also well explained and well put in context, although I don't remember if there was any English translation for non-French speakers. The... More

Quiet and cool and the newer rooms are especially well presented. The pleasant restaurant serves very good food. Admission to the museum is free so don't miss the opportunity to become acquainted with some of the art of the region and to learn about the Dukes of Burgundy whose over-the-top tombs you will have a chance to see.

Free to go inside, beautiful historical arts. There is a nice cafe at the first floor, so nice to stay longer.

Located in the Palais des Ducs compound, this MB-A is one of the oldest in France . It has an eclectic collection , ranging from Egyptian antiquities to some Dutch and Italian masters and modern works by French and European artists. The most interesting collection for me were the various remains of the lavish court of the Dukes of Burgundy.... More

It was my first time in Dijon and I was absolutely in love of it. Its elegant and sophisticated arquitecture require time to better appreciate. And in my opinion the jewel of the crown if this museum or the former Palace of the Dukes. This magnificent building, remarkably well-preserved, holds a spectacular tombs of the Dukes and 2 impressive alterpieces... More

This is a wonderful museum, hidden away and being bashful. There is some great content here and we truly wish that we had more time to spend enjoying it.
