A truly fascinating place.

This place offers everything it's amazing to look at but the story behind the building I'd equally as interesting. In my opinion you can visit Beaune without visiting here

Wonderful historic building, showing a piece of history of France. Interesting how the rich from the past contributed for health care for the poor, to be sure of a place in heaven. Very beautiful painting from the 15th century by Rogier van Der Weijden. good explanation in multiple languages by audio system.

An absolute must-see when you are in Beaune or anywhere near the area. The stunning tile design of the front of the building along with the interesting architecture are only part of the story - the self-guided tour of the 'elite' medieval hospital provides such an eye-opening view of what life was like. Every room has been restored and in... More

Fascinating look at medieval hospital which survived for 500 years, healing the sick, supported by its own vineyards. Audio guide is very informative. My tween and teenage daughters liked the audio guide also.

We don't regret going but really the best view is the outside of the building. I don't consider it a 'must' but it was interesting.

Beautiful historic building with the most amazing roof. The museum tells the story of the building which was a hospital for the poor for about 500 years. It's been lovingly restored showing various stages of its life from the 15th century onwards. Great audio guide. It does get busy and sometimes the queue to get in is long but it's... More

We were able to visit the building in the late afternoon, which was nice. The building is beautiful. The audio guide was very good. Everything is in great condition. This place has a very interesting history.

This Renaissance style former hospital & charitable house for the poor was completed in 1452 and is located in the center of Beaune, Burgundy. The façade looks almost Flemish with its long sloping roof containing 8 small and two larger dormer windows and the clock and bell tower w/ spire towering above. A pair of two-storied buildings are surrounded on... More

A beautiful historic building in the heart of Beaune. The audio guides included with admission fee is very informative. Plan for a couple of hours at least to really absorb the history.

This is a visually stunning museum and the history of the hospital is quite interesting. The structure of the audio tour is much better than one usually experiences--more like an audio-play versus a dry monotone of historical facts. The story of the Hospice de Beaune gives you a significant amount of history of the area as well as the city... More
