The Dijon Museum of Fine Arts is one of the most important and one of the oldest museums in France. Located in the heart of the city, it occupies the former ducal palace, the 15th century seat of the Burgundian state. When the duchy was attached to the kingdom of France, the palace became the king’s dwelling place, then in the 17th century it was transformed into the palace of the States of Burgundy, on a design by Jules Hardouin-Mansart.

Since 2006, the museum has been undergoing total renovation and expansion. Initially, the work was concentrated on a single section of the renovated “Middle Ages – Renaissance” route, which was inaugurated on 7 September 2013. On May 17, 2019, the completely renovated museum presenting 1,500 works in 50 rooms was inaugurated in the presence of the Minister of Culture Franck Riester, former President of the Republic François Hollande and Mayor François Rebsamen.
