Opening ceremony of Fine Arts Museum of Dijon

After fifteen years of studies and works, the Museum of Fine Arts in Dijon reopens in its entirety, completely renovated and expanded, Friday, May 17. Since 2005, alongside the City of Dijon, Ateliers Lion associés has been working on this “metamorphosis”, in collaboration with Eric Pallot, chief architect of historical monuments. The project is primarily urban: the interior and exterior spaces of the museum open onto the city. Housing the renowned collections, the Palace of the Dukes and States of Burgundy is enhanced in its urban and heritage context. Revised and accessible to all audiences, the permanent route is consistent with the chronology of the different buildings of the palace.
