The Musée Rude is an art museum dedicated to the French sculptor François Rude (1784–1855). It has the "Musée de France" label and has been housed since 1947 in a part of the former Église Saint-Étienne of Dijon, built during the 11th century. The museum displays life-size plaster casts acquired by the Dijon municipality between 1887 and 1910, which are major works by the artist exhibited in other museums in France (including the Louvre in Paris). The museum also displays archaeological crypt of the 11th century and the former St. Stephen's Gate of the Dijon castrum of the 3rd century on which the church is built. Open from 9:30 am to 6 pm from 1 June to 30 September, the museum is free.

  • Small and a good overview of the work of a famous sculpture of the 19th Century who was employed to make sculptures of famous people. His work is in many places and here are his greatest hits...

  • It wont take long as the museum only contains a small collection of Rude's works, but it is definitively worth popping in.

  • Despite it being a small museum; only two rooms, it's still super splendid! You can see in the photos the beauty of the statues inside! I really recommend passing by and having a look there. Such a special city; dijon!
  • So interesting! But really small. Seems like it's inside an old church
