We decided to pop in here on a spur of a moment and it was an excellent decision. The sculptures are incredible, especially the massive one on the wall. Wish we had had more time to explore each piece longer.

Musee Rude is a free museum that takes about 20-30 minutes to view. My wife and I stopped by while we were in Dijon on our honeymoon. The woman at the entrance counter just asked us where we were from, and then let us in. There are many sculptures to view here. I particularly liked the one of Napoleon The... More

We found this exhibition by chance, on our way to the Palais des Ducs. So glad we did! His sculptures are incredible. The most impressive one, of course, is the Depart des Volontaires, which is on the Arc de Triomphe. I have to confess that I had never heard of him before - but I am glad that I know... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our 15 minute visit to this free museum in central Dijon. The full-size copy of the relief that is on the Arc de Triomphe in Paris is truly impressive!

Wow, what great pieces of sculpture! Rude was the person who carved the Arc de Triomphe in Paris. Well worth visiting.

The Francois Rude sculptures are massive, detailed classics. I wandered into to the old church not knowing what was inside. Incredible sculptures including Napoleon and a massive version of his Arc de Triomphe masterpiece. Further inside are some impressive unrestored interior and foundations of the original church.

As I walked in through the entrance I was stunned by the massive sculpture on the facing wall of what was once a church. This museum is truly a surprise and is well worth the few minutes walk from the musee des beaux arts just up the road. Sculptures of Napoleon and Marshall Ney dominate the side of the two... More

I am not a connoisseur of sculpture, but it was interesting to look at some oeuvres of this sculptor. Personally, I liked the statue of some italian boy, playing with a turtle. The museum is rather small, it hardly takes half a hour to look at all the sculptures. I enjoyed the part of the museum that overlooks the sanctuary... More
