  • Walk up to the Museum. Now 2 rooms under renovation. Reduced prices. Listen in the handset if Chagall's life as a Jew and an artist in Vitebsk.

  • What a disappointment to pay FULL TICKET PRICE and just get to see the 3 rooms with the religious paintings of Chagall. The rest of the museum was closed off with a note "Closed for Technical Reasons"...  more »

  • Beautiful museum with a very insightful audio guide tour and a full length documentary in the theater. Mostly features Chagall's biblical works. Worth the visit if you're in Nice and enjoy art. The grounds are also lovely and there is a small cafe. Beware that parking is a challenge here, with a tiny parking lot for 6-7 cars -- and not for the novice navigator unless you want a few new scratches on your car, and the rest is street parking on a narrow and winding street that was packed.
  • The size of the museum took me by surprise for the amount I had to pay at the door but there is a lot of information in there. I would highly recommend getting the audio guide as you do need it to understand Chagall's paintings. I love the colors he used in his paintings to illustrate his thoughts. I spent more time here than in Museé Matisse.
  • If you are in Nice, it places you must visit. The pictures were put by Chagall when he was alive. The museum holds the most significant collection of Chagall paintings. Visit coffee shop which is just outside the museum. It is an excellent place sit and enjoy the surroundings. The dishes are quite generous and not expensive. Great service.
  • Stunning collection of Chagall's large biblical works. The English language recorded commentary was excellent. Easily my favorite art museum in Provence.
  • It is a small museum, but the biggest for fans of the Belarussian painter Marc Chagall. The architecture of the building, which was the first museum dedicated to the life's work of a living artist, is also interesting. The diversity of Marc Chagall's work, but above all the use of biblical motifs in his paintings, is explained here in a vivid way.
