Worth a visit

This museum is really worth a visit. An audioguide provides information on exhibits. Very informative tour through history of health care. Stunning building as well.

One of those "you have to go" places if you are in this area - I was skeptical but it was interesting and entertaining. For the cost compared with other local "attractions" it was a great value. The audio guide is included in the price - bring your own headphones if you want to go hands free and avoid other... More

I ahve never seen anything like this in UK, well worth a visit and costs 7.50 with an audio tour that took us about an hour or so. No refreshments. Open every day including Sundays.

They are built in a large square around a central courtyard. Staffed by nuns from a specially setup religious order, the hospices provided nursing care, bed and board for... More

One of the first of what would become a model for hosptitals in Europe and the Western World, the Hotel Dieu is a must see attraction in Beaune. Wonderful tile roofs and amazingly detailed self-guided tour. Plan at least one hour.

Worth looking at it and listening to the long audio guide. Do not expect any wine tasting as in most of other places.

This is the top attraction in Beaune. The exibition about the hospital and its history are informative. Though we are more impressed with the beautiful tiled roof and the architecture of the building. We caught the tail end of the Wednesday market (held in the square right out of the Hospital) the day we arrived. and bought a few eating... More
