  • Well worth a visit if you are interested in every day life of (mainly) 19th century Burgundy. Highlights are the very life like tableaux on the ground floor and a large number of reconstructed shops on the first floor.
  • Museum about historic Burgundian culture. Signage was primarily in French only. Staff were pleasant and helpful.
