Dijon Archeology Museum

Interesting
The east wing of the missing cloister of the former Abbey of St Bénigne is home to the museum which showcases regional collections from Prehistory to the Middle Ages. Some fine Romanesque rooms display Gallo-Roman sculptures, including a statuette of the goddess Sequana. Look out for the superb Christ on the Cross by Claus de Werve in the former monks' dormitory. Also keep your eyes open for an attractive frieze representing the Mother-Goddesses of Alesia and some 5C-6C Merovingian sarcophagi.
