  • I was not sure what to expect but found this to be a "must visit" if in Nice. The system to hear in ones own language about each piece was a bonus and the paintings are both stimulating and interestin...  more »
  • Dedicated to Marc Chagall, this Museum showcases his paintings inspired by the Bible and life; the shop allows you to bring a souvenir of your visit.

  • A wonderful collection in a very nice building in a quiet suburb of Nice. A lovely garden with a terrace for a cup of coffee for discovering the special work of Chagall! Top!

  • This museum is so well done, it is no wonder that Chagall himself had a hand in building it. The biblical theme of the work, from the Song of Songs, lends an almost cathedral-like quality to the atmosphere. The video is quite good, worth waiting if you missed the timing. The video is shown in French and English. I loved the mosaic the most, but was confused why the pool was dirty, since it was Chagall's intention that the colors of the mosaic be reflected, and I think you would need a clean white floor for that. There is a lovely, tiny cafe on the grounds that makes for a great spot to rest at any point. Excellent gift shop. A lovely visit!
  • Great, welcoming staff and complementary audio guides make the experience hugely engaging. The art is incredible and the building and grounds totally beautiful.
  • There is a great exhibition, but a problem in the operation that is personified vested. It is better to run entrusted to the high brand companies. Or to buy tickets on Sunday admission free, or needed a ID to rent audio guide, trouble often.
  • I really like Chagall's work, maybe because be manages to squeeze so many themes and references into each painting - it gives each one depth or at least there's a lot to find and explore. Different from a lot of "one thing" pieces of modern art where yes you can have many of perspectives on the piece but it's still only one simple thing that you're looking at. The museum is great itself - comfortable spacious galleries.
  • There's hardly a bad thing to say about this museum except that the parking can be difficult. So after finding a spot multiple blocks away, enjoy the walk and take in the beauty of the inside.
