“A wonderful museum”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

The museum has been totally renovated and has a wonderful collection of art works while the Burgundy Dukes where among the most powerful people. The tumbs are outstanding with numerous small statues.

“A touch of history”
Reviewed 19 March 2014

Set in the ducal palace, this museum has a fantastic exhibition devoted to the history of Burgundy and its dukes. Includes many electronic touch screens, with several geared towards children (games for them to play). And it's free!

“Worth a Visit”
Reviewed 16 January 2014

The museum is situated in the Ducal Palace, which in itself makes it work a visit. In some of the galleries on the lower floors the decor is intact and you can get a sense for the grandeur of the time. Which makes it more interesting than your average art gallery. I don't know much about art, but enjoyed wandering around and browsing the varied collections.

“Large. And nice.. Not so many things from Dijon, but worth a visit”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

I liked the ease of access. Sligthly disapointed by the great number of things not from Dijon. The building itself is nice outside, but the inside is more modern. I had hoped to find more of the original building. Guess I had not read about it before.
