Concierge.com's insider take:
In Beaune, Burgundy's wine capital, some wine shops call themselves museums, but a visit to the Musée du Vin is the best way to learn about the history of wine, from antiquity through the 20th century. The museum is housed in the former palace of the Dukes of Burgundy (the dynasty moved to Dijon in the late 14th century), and the medieval architecture, art, and objects associated with winemaking—antique bottles, glasses, tools, and pitchers—are interesting even if you aren't a wine fanatic.—David Downie
