This is very good if you have any interest whatsoever in how people lived in the area. Lots of artifacts. Interesting displays. In the era of people walking with their screens to their eyes, it was refreshing to see how people lived not so long ago.

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, furniture, etc. It's free as are most things in Dijon.

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 museums in Dijon so if you have the time - see this museum. Is this... 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.

This free to enter museum is worth an hour or two of your time as it charts Burgundy life over time with many exhibits of the life and times of Burgundy as through the years with many examples of the clothes, skills and premises through time.

By accident we hit this museum and had a visit there. it was a nice and interesting museum to visit to see the life of the people of Burgundy! Go in, walk in, take a look and enjoy and well it is FREE which is wonderful and gives also people with limited budgets the chance to visit!

This museum really captures what life was like in Bourguignonne in the 19th and 20th century. The exhibits really speak for themselves as they are set up to display aspects of the culture and times. If you have a scientist or engineer in your group, don't miss the antique scientific instruments on the top floor. This was a favorite stop.
