  • Beautiful setting and really well presented. Not a fan of the work though personally. Lovely cafe in the garden and gift shop well stocked but expensive. You get a free audio guide if you leave a credit card or ID card.
  • I love Chagall!!! Before I didn't know him but when I watched the film, I really appreciated his works. Free entrance during first Sundays of every month. Also, this is a National museum, hence, it is not included in the free Museum Pass of Nice for the residents.
  • It was really intersting and beautiful. I'm glad I visited it. Furthermore, my sons of 20 and 18 years entered without paying. They were enthusiastic about this museum too.
  • Beautiful curation of this artist's work. Themed exhibitions will call you back, as fresh aspects of his body of work are displayed.
  • Very comprehensive collection in a relatively small space. Gave me a renewed respect for his artistry and versatility.
