The Musee Des Beaux Arts is in the middle of a renovation --but do not let that stop you. The museum is free and has several rooms showcasing a wonderful collection of religious French art from the middle ages. Plan accordingly: All museums & churches (in Dijon) shut down between 12 and 2PM. (No one told us!!!!!!) The restaurants are... More

Musee is part of the Palace of the Dukes of Burgundy, close to our hotel, the art we could see was very good and well presented. sadly for those going this summer(2016) renovations have closed the Impressionists and some other art we wanted to see

This is quite a big museum with nice collections of the different types of historical objects. Some of them you won't find in other museums. Also, the museum has very nice views from the windows, you can see the city from the top!

As a free attraction (currently under renovation) this has a lot to offer tourists. The museum houses so many of the treasures of the Dukes of Burgundy in beautiful surroundings. There are English/French information boards in the rooms and a little gift area as you leave.

We were nearly ready to move on from Dijon and decided to visit the Musee des Beaux-Arts Dijon. Central location. Free. Excellent collection of middle age art and history. Audio guide available. Amazing Guards room which contains the sarcophagi of 2 Dukes of Burgundy. It would be a great pity to visit Dijon and not enjoy this museum.

Not all of the musee is open due to renovations. The carvings on the tombs is very good. Also there is interactive informaton boards, English being one of them. Not a shop rather a kisok to buy postcards etc from

Free entry. It has lots of historical things to see. Works of art, sculptors. The huge fireplace and tomb is the Dukes is well worth a look at the stone carvings. Have a drink in the cafe adjacent. Not too crowded on the Monday.

You have to see this, esp the intricate tombs contained within the museum. Free entry at the moment, not sure id this is permanent or because of the renovation work - but this does not detract. Don't forget to take in the views from the windows!
