  • We had a full day biking the Burgundy Wine Tour, but finished the day touring this museum. We were both so glad that we had taken the time. A visit to Beaune wouldn't be complete without it!

  • Historical landmark which served as the first ever hospital in the world. The place have a rich history and a nice audio guided tour. I would say this is this is the main attraction in Beaune.
  • Well worth a visit. Amazing architecture and comprehensive exhibits. The audio guide was very interesting. Visited in June, no queues!
