“Private Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

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.

“Eh.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

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 the art is derivative or copies of better works. We visited while on a walking tour of Dijon... felt like we wasted our time. Why spend time looking and B-grade art when there is so much fantastic art -- like the Mourners and the Tomb of Phillip the Bold -- to see in Dijon?

“Worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2012

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.

“art collection in 17th century mansion”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2010

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.
