Interesting and free small museum

This is an ancient abbey that has been turned into a small museum with statues of various historical persons. It's free and on the main tourist path so it's worth a stop.

It was interesting to learn a little about the history of the area around Dijon and to see statuary and relics from thousands of years ago. I wish there had been some information in English--even a brochure would have helped. And it was a little creepy to be followed around by a "guard" on the lower floor. On the upper... More
