just one stained glass window exhibit. Otherwise the pieces on show are all from his series of paintings illustrating themes from the bible. Disappointing. Not sure it's worth the visit.

Great place in fab location, fantastic little coffee shop in the lovely garden. The museum is small, but make sure you have plenty time to see all the works. Many are complex and detailed, and be sure to use at least the audio guide u r given on entrance. I would have preferred a guided tour with a human,but the... More

The museum reflects Chagall's art very well. It's sunny and bright and does give you a good overview of Chagall's art. It's small and a bit out of the main area, so it's a shlep... but there's a cute cafe in the garden, if you want to have lunch and a glass of wine in a lovely setting.

The building is very nice. Sadly, the garden is closed off. Chagall's paintings are Chagall's paintings, but the selection on exhibit when we visited was limited and did not seem to offer neither a full scope nor any interesting vantage points. About 1/3 of the area was dedicated to some guest artist whose works were interesting enough but did not... More

Marc Chagall's special art is best appreciated at this fine museum that was created by him for his unique Biblical Cycle. The vibrant colors and symbols are especially suited to viewing while in Nice and the sunshine of southern France. Not to be missed!

Normally people go to an art gallery or museum to look at various art pieces and chose the artist who they prefer and which art piece that they like. Here you already know that you like Chagall and this is the place to see his work. We need more of such singular artist galleries. His work was well presented and... More

Both my husband and I are Chagall lovers. It was the height of our visit to Nice. This museum is up on the hill, in the northern part. There are such a combination of Chagall's various kinds of art. I had chances of close observations of the art more than I learned from books. DO NOT MISS THE FREE FILM... More
