We really liked this museum and its free. Definitely worth a visit and persist to find it - the downside is that the entrance door is not that easy to find. A little plaque directs you to a plain pale blue door and you open it, and you are there. But it's not obvious. However the museum is good, particularly level 1. We would prefer more in English and found the English guide we were given a little hard to read in the gloomy light downstairs. Still recommended for an hour or so.

This was an extremely interesting museum of various implements and inventions. I never expected it to be so large and interesting. The museum gave a great glimpse of life in Burgundy. There were also displays of many coifffes and bonnets, as well as an old pharmacy and a mustard shop.

This was for me the most interesting museum of all, covering all aspects of everyday life, beautifully displayed in an old convent. It is also right next door to the Museum of Sacred Art.

Take the city bus to St. Anne and it drops you off just a few steps away. Make sure you visit.

Really interesting and the volunteers are knowledgeable and eager to share details on the exhibits. A passing knowledge of French helps as the younger staff, like most of France, tend to know some English but the older docents are, quite reasonably, French through and through. My personal fave was old baby buggy and the packaging and marketing from decades past.

The museum is a little tucked away but well worth the detour. The receptionist handed us a guide in English and off we went, the layout on then upper floors is a little confusing at times, but guide book explains it well. This isn't an interactive museum you do have to look at the exhibits and interpret them yourself.
