Nice museum about history of French living, but all texts are in French. You can get a booklet with the translations, but this contains a lot of text. Upper floor (apparently most interesting) was closed during our visit.

Well displayed material gave fascinating insights into the life of ordinary people in Burgundy in times past. The displays about some of the area's specialities (mustard, biscuits, Cassis) were especially interesting. Clothing, domestic interiors and home life, transport, economic and political activity were all covered....More

We really enjoyed our visit. Great collection of items on 2 floors. Takes a little peek at life in Dijon and Bourgogne through the ages. Some of the displays on the 2nd floor are set up like local shops... well thought out.

A very big museum about the life in Burgundy in old times... I can't say I liked it because there are too many things to see and it's sometimes hard to match the text to the exhibits. The wax characters are well-done but their faces...More

This museum has FREE entry for all public and presents the life (people and commerce) of the past epoch in Dijon. A surprising visit.

Worth popping in if you are passing and if it is raining or too hot. There is an English brochure to read but it is very heavy going and hard to match the text to the exhibits

It sits next door to the Musee Arts Sacre which is what i really wanted to see - but it was closed because of lack of personnel. So this museum has a nice courtyard and shows the daily life of the locals. Mannequins dressed up,...More

Plan accordingly. This museum is closed from 12-2PM. This museum houses a charming array of objects from the Dijon town history. In my opinion, some trip-advisor reviews are a little too complimentary of this museum - but we did enjoy it. There aren't that many...More

Stumbled on this treasure trove. Free entry. Well worth a visit spent around 1hr looking at ecclesiastical treasures and antiquities of Burgundians. Chalices, silverware, embroideries. Fascinating.
