  • It's a beautiful building in the heart of Dijon, gives the history of the dukes of Dijon. Great collection of art and has some crowns. Also a nice collection of weapons and armour. It's free

  • Small, but nice collection of medieval arts. Free entrance.

  • They don't have any fantastic, super-star attractions, but what they have is well-presented and very representative of various medieval artistic styles. I love the iconography of the period. The large tapestries, stained glass, and suits of armor are particularly engaging. Entrance is free, so it's well worth a visit--and I bet that even if you intend to stop in for just ten minutes, you'll wind up staying for at least an hour.

  • Delightful (and large) medieval collection.

  • Can't wait to go back when the renovation is complete in 2017, right now most of the museum is closed.
