Nice free stop!

We happened to wander in here. It's not big, not in English, but has some interesting statues. Worth a stop!

This is a very small, but interesting museum in Dijon. Unfortunately, there are no guides in English (only two small notices). I highly recommend to go there, but read some articles about the exposition before that.

Very small, compact, but informative collection of plaster casts on works by a Dijon-born sculptor Francois Rude. The admission is free of charge and the entire visit would take only a few minutes, but the impression from his very approachable, traditional school art would last much longer.

This is in an old building or ancient place and has a few statues in one room with one significant one taking up a large wall. An adjoining room reflect significant age. It takes 10 minutes, close to a church and the Beaux Arts. Go.

An interesting free to enter museum containing a number if statues and sculptures of a range of well known French individuals including Joan of Arc and Napoleon. Well worth a few minutes if your time to explore as it is very compact.

This place is a wonderful find. Francois Rude was a truly outstanding sculptor. This small museum brings to life Rude's work.

...between the Palace of the Dukes and the Saint Michel church -- it's really just two rooms. But the works are impressive and you can't complain about the price: it's free. Opening times can vary slightly from those listed in guide books.
