  • A broad collection of works of art from ancient to modern times, many beautiful items. I was most impressed by the sculptures in the church building connected to the museum.

  • Good museum. A walking tour of Dijon took us here. The permanent collection is free and we went to see the Tombs of the Dukes of Burgundy. Fascinating. We had to walk much of the museum to get there and deeply regretted not having the time to study the collection.
  • Great museum with a lot of Egyptian, Greek, roman and a lot more. 9 euro for adults, 5 for 18-25 so it is affordable. They do close some exhibits during lunch so check on hours prior to your visit.
