The statuary here is amazing. Situated next to the cathedral, it it easy to access. I was disappointed, tho, that the statue of the Roman god Crepitus previously in old Talant wasn't there as I read it was.

Good quality exhibits covering a diverse range of timeframes housed on 3 floors and should give something of interest to most people. Stairs were a bit of a hike especially to the top floor. Atmospheric Setting in the ground floor catacombs were most interesting.

Be prepared to use your french for the exhibition. Very interesting and very well presented. A very interesting contrast between the old abbey and the roman artifacts. Really enjoyed. Only need less than an hour to see.

We picked it as a pre lunch activity. After checking in, the tour starts on the second floor. There are tools, jewlery, vases, weapons, glass items. The most imares I've was a lare gold bracelet. The first floor appeared closed for renovation. The cellar was ancient with pillars supporting the building. It only cost time, so enjoy.

The first (underground, or maybe just low first floor) gives you a notion of how dark and cramped buildings were in the Middle Ages, even for the monks, who, even if they themselves were nominally poor, had the best infrastructure of anybody. The archeological explanations are interesting, and the price is right (free). Worth 20 minutes on a hot Sunday.

We visited this museum and entered because it was free. 2 floors of statues, graphs, artifacts from paleo period. It is all in French but a nice stop on the Owl trail to warm up.

This is an ancient abbey that has been turned into a small museum with statues of various historical persons. It's free and on the main tourist path so it's worth a stop.

The museum is set in a peaceful garden with huge trees, beside the Cathedral. It has a very interesting collection, housed on two floors, and a small selection of postcards and other souvenirs.

My wife and I enjoyed this museum, which is affiliated with the local university. There were a number of good exhibits that document the archeological history of the area. Displays are bilingual or trilingual, and nicely displayed and curated. There is a very good set of displays in the basement area, so don't ignore that part of the museum before... More

It was interesting to learn a little about the history of the area around Dijon and to see statuary and relics from thousands of years ago. I wish there had been some information in English--even a brochure would have helped. And it was a little creepy to be followed around by a "guard" on the lower floor. On the upper... More
