We called in because we were following the Owl's Trail. It seemed interesting, though as the descriptions were only in French we didn't stay as long as we might have.

The Musee Archeolgique has a lovely display of Roman "finds" in Dijon - beautifully displayed. Unfortunately no signage in English which makes the visit less educational if you don't happen to be fluent in French. Still recommended
