Musee des Beaux-Arts de Dijon reviews
Well presented, pleasant staff and free. It was worth it, for me, to see the medieval altarpiece and the tombs of the Dukes of Burgundy. The rest of the art struck me as pretty mediocre I'm afraid.

Nice Museum, very well renovated mixing modern display and traditional aesthetic. Sculptures, paintings, ancient and more modern art will be available for free, it is a very unique initiative from the city of Dijon. Well served with 2 elevators too
The Dukes of Bourgondy took the belfrey clock of Kortrijk and placed it on the Notre Dame at Dijon in order for the 'Jaquemart' to strike each hour of the day. But it wouldnt be the only artifact that the Dukes would take from Flanders. As the power of the Dukes rose, so as well did the cultural richness as they ordered several most reknown artist of the time to excell on their artwork. Although the French revolution destroyed the church where the richness of the Dukes was ment to survive the ages, the tombs survived so we can still witness how Klaus Sluter sculpted the 'plearants' in order to grieve for the Duke and his whife. But there is much more to see than only the medieval art. Certaibly wirthwhile the visit.
