Musee De L'hotel Dieu - Review

Also known as the Hospices de Beaune, it is a former charitable almshouse in the city. It was established by Nicholas Rolin as a hospital for the poor and needy. This hospital was at that time one of the finest examples of French 15th Century architecture. Later this was transformed into a museum as we see now. The treatment of patients is now done in modern hospitals. It was founded in August 1443 when Burgundy was ruled by Duke Philip the Good.

The interiors are extraordinary with a rectangular room. As you go inside, you will find:

  • Lovely glazed tile work that are examples of typical Burgundy designs with basic colors such as Red, Yellow, Brown and Green and interlaced designs.
  • Lovely Gothic iron Works and Wood designs on the large attic windows.
  • The Room of the Poor has a painted ceiling that looks like an upside- down skiff of a boat. The paintings are of eminent personalities of the city and their caricatures.Next is the Chapel that also has very beautiful frescoes and paintings on the ceilings. This place was made to let the bed ridden people attend mass from their bed. 
  • There are also other mural paintings from the 17th century and additions of the 20th century too.

Musee De L'hotel Dieu, Beaune Reviews

  • This place was a hospital for 600years. Care was free for the poor. Of course it was 2 per bed and no heat If you could pay you got your own bed and a fire place. There is a good audio guide. This is not your typical museum. We enjoyed it

  • A cool historical site well worth the 7.50€ (5.50€ for students). The free audio guide is interesting, though a little long. You can easily spend 2-3 hours here, though if you just want to breeze through and look at the architecture and artifacts, you definitely could in an hour.

  • Recommended when visiting Beaune. Interesting museum about the health care during 1443 until 1980. The building itself is beautiful and well preserved (and renovated). Enough and clear information in several languages through a sound set (bring your own hear plugs for more comfort).

  • A very interesting place to visit. The audio guide is included in the ticket price and is actually very good and interesting unlike most audio guides I’ve used in the past.

  • Very well set up. More interesting than I expected. Go on a Saturday if possible as the beaunne, is on and it's great.
