  • Really a positive experience-the first national museum in France to a then-living artist. That Chagall himself has contributed to the architecture and décor provides a great depth in the exhibition. Chagall is probably best known as a painter with have worked with both sculptures, mosaic and glass art. The Museum is professionally with a really good radio tells the system. To here so also is cool and without Beach tourists provides everything else just a little extra.

  • I love Chagall so I knew I'd love this museum. It's situated up on Cimiez hill with stunning views of the city and the bay below. Although it focuses on particular religious themes there are plenty of...  more »

  • Lovely place, a short walk from the train station. Café in the garden is a plus. Not particularly extensive given the €10 entrance fee (July 2017). This is, however, surely the best place to see Chagall's 12 big biblical paintings. As usual no baby changing facilities. But give them credit for step free access and a free audio guide.
  • Great museum. Love Chagall of course which helps. The little cafe is delightful as it is outside. However it ain't cheap and over the course of a few visits we have been overcharged each time so check bill carefully
  • The art itself, as well as the building and the grounds were gorgeous. I love Chagall's works. I was not at all impressed with paying 10 euros (website lists 8 as fee) and having bathrooms,with no soap, no towels, broken hand dryer. In addition, you receive not a single brochure or any info at all about the art. Staff hassled me when entering the second building because I could not immediately locate the ticket in my purse. Then a security guard refused to allow me to keep my water bottle in my purse, told to drink all of it before entering..... After i had just walked 30 minutes to get tbere in June heat.....just unbelievable rude staff.
  • Wonderful way to spend an hour. It's a lovely building and garden. The art was spectacular. I highly recommend using the audio tour ( it's free with entry and exchange of ID)
  • Absolutely beautiful museum. Wonderful collection of work, including sculptures and the sketches that led to them. Give yourself plenty of time to get through it all.
