It is a somewhat long walk from the city centre but it was really worthwhile. The cohesion of the works that were made for this space was impressive. We learned a lot about Chagall and his works. Although we don't usually use the audio tour, we did use it here and it highlighted the compositions in a way we would... More

This collection of Marc Chagall's work is excellent. There is a 9 euro admission charge and audio is available. There is also a gift shop and cafe on the grounds. The primary works located within are from Chagall's Biblic and French Riviera collections. When this museum was built in 1973 it was the first museum commissioned by the French government... More

I didn't know much about Marc Chagall beforehand, but I found the museum and paintings quite interesting. You should go if you are just a tad interested in Chagall's work.

This is a museum that Chagall himself was involved in designing and setting up, so by visiting it one does not only have the opportunity to admire his exceptional Old Testament paintings, but one leaves with a greater understanding and appreciation for this great artist, his life and his work. If you are in Nice, this is the museum to... More

I'm not generally a lover of Chagall's work, but I found this museum to be very satisfying. It focuses on his later paintings with religious themes reflecting his Jewish heritage, several of which are both spectacular and moving. The museum is nicely laid out and compact. By all means take the self-guided tour, and watch the film, which alternates in... More

I'm not a Chagall fan per se, but I loved this museum because of the thematic layout. You really get an opportunity to appreciate an entire period and movement of art given the high concentration of pieces from one artist.

If you only have time to visit one art museum, choose this one over the Matisse museum. The collection is housed in a lovely setting and building and includes works that are recognizable and important. The Matisse Museum is in an old house with little or no airconditioning and is dull in color and variety. The lower floor of the... More

Chagall gave France the gift of the paintings he completed while living in Nice that you will find in this gorgeous museum. It is a place that will leave you with a peaceful feeling and greater appreciation of this artist and the Old Testament.

The museum celebrates the years Chagall lived in Nice and his love for the city. It carries the beautiful works he completed during his time in Nice and although it may not have his most famous masterpieces it does have a unique, generous collection, full of color that will not disappoint Chagall lovers.
