view web site ›'s insider take:

For centuries, the Hospices and Hôtel-Dieu of Beaune (better known simply as the Hospices de Beaune) was the main hospital of this fortified town, Burgundy's wine capital. Now it's a museum with an outstanding 5,000-piece collection that includes Renaissance tapestries, furniture, everyday objects, apothecary jars, and The Last Judgment, a haunting religious masterpiece with nine panels painted by Rogier van der Weyden circa 1450. The building's Renaissance architecture is itself a work of art, particularly the half-timbered Grand Salle (the former hospital dormitory), colorful Burgundian glazed-tile roof, and courtyard. Each November, a gala charity wine auction is held here, which helps set prices for the year's top vintage wines and funds the hospice, which is also a geriatric hospital and retirement home.—David Downie

Open daily 9 to 11:30 am and 2 to 5:30 pm, January through late March and late November through December; daily 9 am to 6:30 pm late March through mid-November.
