We didn't realise this was right opposite our hotel (Phillipe Le Bon), this museum and the one next door, sacred arts, are both free entry and worth a look. Lots of interesting items from daily life in Bourgogne in the early days.

This small museum makes up for its size by giving a good overview of the life and history of Dijon and the surrounding Burgundy region. Well worth a visit.
