  • One of the most beautiful experiences in Nice; The installation, lighting, quantity and magnificence of the originals can not replace any of the books on art from which I knew his work. I was enchanted at the museum...

  • The building and gardens are lovely. I've tried hard to like Chagall's work, but it's really not for me. Disappointed that half the museum was closed and that the audio guides don't cover all the exhi...  more »

  • Very interesting museum, well curated and displaying great Chagall masterpieces. I suggest grabbing the free audio guides offered in exchange for an ID: I found them very useful to provide valuable information on the paintings and artist. My favourite part was a documentary on Chagall played in the auditorium: unfortunately not all of it is subtitled but it’s still a good experience. Enjoy your visit!
  • This is, quite possibly, my favourite art museum in the world. Chagall's artwork is overwhelming beautiful on its own, but the museum also provides the perfect setting for its exposition (one can feel Chagall's hand at every turn - it makes one wishes artists could always decide the shale of their own exhibitions). Perfect lighting, enough space to always view the works serenely... I can't recommend a visit enough!
