  • An exquisite little gem of a place. The Magnin's had superb taste in Art and it was a privilege to step inside one of the mansions dotted around Dijon. The Magnins bought Art that they loved and they had a great eye. Not big name pieces but almost all I'd happily have taken home! Some of the rooms are decorated in historic style and some are particularly pretty - you can fully imagine an elegant dijonnaise lady floating around in them! Tickets cost €3.50 and include an audio guide (ours was in English) that has some thoughts written by the Magnin's which are well worth listening to. We almost missed visiting this lovely place and I don't think the guidebooks do it justice. I would very highly recommend the Musée Magnin  and would love to go back and spend a few hours gazing at the beautiful Art.
  • Small but lovely museum with beautiful drawings and a stunning terracotta maquette attributed to Bernini. Very helpful staff. Well worth a visit.
