This free museum is quite well done in a small space. Well explained specimens of historic and prehistoric culture abound.The grotto at the very lowest level is totally fascinating.

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

The statuary here is amazing. Situated next to the cathedral, it it easy to access. I was disappointed, tho, that the statue of the Roman god Crepitus previously in old Talant wasn't there as I read it was.

Good quality exhibits covering a diverse range of timeframes housed on 3 floors and should give something of interest to most people. Stairs were a bit of a hike especially to the top floor. Atmospheric Setting in the ground floor catacombs were most interesting.
