...between the Palace of the Dukes and the Saint Michel church -- it's really just two rooms. But the works are impressive and you can't complain about the price: it's free. Opening times can vary slightly from those listed in guide books.

Not part of our plans, we just happened to walk by. A small place but quite interesting and free. no need to make a big detour but worth a stop.

This is a small museum only showing works by Rude, free entry but worth the stop for half an hour to look at his works, one of which relates to Australia, the explorer La Perouse

Given it is really tiny we went in to have a look as it was Patrimony day and free. Not sure it would be worth a special visit as it is basically two rooms

Immense sculptures that you can get right up close and personal with. Some excellent work. Totally free and in a great setting. You will be surprised at how many you may, or will seen the originals of on your travels throughout France.

The sculptures were plaster copies, possibly patterns for the actual ones. Free to USA folks. Really just one area set aside for some of his work. Maybe a good introduction To his works. No WC.

Amazing hidden gem that was free to explore. Fantastic Romanesque sculptures and one amazingly imposing show stopper. Also a great archeological site round the back.

Small but impressive exhibition of this artist with a great name. Impressive sculptures in an old chapel in the centre of the city. Another free Dijon visit.

Near the muse de beaux arts. Very small, but qualitative scriptures. Amazed to see the same scripture from arc de trion, Paris.
