It has the "Musée de France" label and has been housed since 1947 in a part of the former Église Saint-Étienne of Dijon, built during the 11th century.

The museum also displays archaeological crypt of the 11th century and the former St. Stephen's Gate of the Dijon castrum of the 3rd century on which the church is built.
