About Musee De L'hotel Dieu, Beaune

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

  • As a previous employee of a modern hospice in South Africa, it was really a wonderful and very informative experience for me to visit this museum. The historical details of the early development and financial challenges of the Hospice are remarkably similar to what the founders of our hospice experienced in 1980. The complex is well maintained and worth a visit.

  • Quite a good surprise! The audio is included in the price and it brings the place to life (unlike the Cluny Abbey audio that is a bunch of words but says little). Very interesting, glad we made the effort to see this unique piece of history.

  • A beatiful building with very interesting history. Highly recommended for visiting and don't forget to get the free audio gid!

  • Interesting. Good audio tour with a kids specific audio tour and map. Well thought out and good fun.

  • My family and I really enjoyed our visit. It was very detailed the staff gave us lots of information.
