Plan accordingly. This museum is closed from 12-2PM. This museum houses a charming array of objects from the Dijon town history. In my opinion, some trip-advisor reviews are a little too complimentary of this museum - but we did enjoy it. There aren't that many museums in Dijon so if you have the time - see this museum. Is this... More

Stumbled on this treasure trove. Free entry. Well worth a visit spent around 1hr looking at ecclesiastical treasures and antiquities of Burgundians. Chalices, silverware, embroideries. Fascinating.

This free to enter museum is worth an hour or two of your time as it charts Burgundy life over time with many exhibits of the life and times of Burgundy as through the years with many examples of the clothes, skills and premises through time.

This museum really captures what life was like in Bourguignonne in the 19th and 20th century. The exhibits really speak for themselves as they are set up to display aspects of the culture and times. If you have a scientist or engineer in your group, don't miss the antique scientific instruments on the top floor. This was a favorite stop.

Good insight into past history, well laid out and with explanatory booklet in English if required. Covers off on a lot of French history and the way of life in years now past.

There was no one else at the museum when I visited but it has a lot to see. The main floor features mannequins in traditional dress posed in various settings, as well as displays of domestic life such as kitchens and bedrooms and their related tools and furniture. Upstairs there are recreations of businesses like a candy store, pharmacy, a... More

Lots of opportunities to see the life of "regular" folks rather than the rich and powerful. Very interesting everyday objects.

This museum, which is free, provides an excellent exhibition of Dijon life in the past. It is worth taking a deviation from the regular 'owl' route to take in this museum.
