Private collection of paintings

The museum located in a beatiful and charming typical old Dijon mansion. The rooms have a beatiful decoration and there are a lot of French and Italian paintings and furnitures.

The Magnin family were remarkable for two reasons, firstly, for their passion for art, and secondly, for being such great benefactors by giving their art collection and home to the people of Dijon. The home is a stately mansion giving an insight into how wealthy people lived. The private living quarters are beautiful. Whilst many of the art works are... More

The tiny museum was literally next door to our rental apartment, so I stopped in for a brief afternoon visit. Set in a former residence and spread out over two floors, the collection includes both paintings and furnishings. The paintings were lovely, though there is not necessarily anything that art connoisseur types would label as a masterpiece. I was very... More

This museum contains a private eclectic family collection. Based in a town house, it felt just like being in someone's home. Absolutely charming, and an added bonus is that it is one of the few museums open on a Tuesday.

Unless you've a passion for painting... and Grade B painting in particular... don't bother. Lovely building nice staff but the collection is really sort of boring. The collectors, apparently, didn't want to collect the "top" art of a period... their interest was seemingly in the secondary painters. There is a reason they were the "B" painters and rarely remember because... More

If you wish to see a 17th Century Villa with period furniture this is a must. Gorgeous rooms. Exceptional art collection. Expecially enjoyed the bedroom apartment, with its vibrant furniture and furnishings.

Very nice collection of 16th thru 19th century paintings displayed among period furniture in this 17th century mansion. We especially enjoyed viewing the "apartment" on the second floor of the Magnin family who owned the villa and collected the art.
