The Museo Chagall is an exceptional place to visit. The grounds are lovely and the outdoor cafe is so very pleasant. Of course the most compelling aspect was the presentation of the art. The museum exhibited about 30 very large and striking works by the artist. The focus on the these works (along with the accompanying audio guide) gave the... More

Although we were expecting this to be a bigger exhibition, particularly in view of the size of the buildings/gardens, it did not disappoint in quality. We were fortunate to be here for annual "free museum night" and so went in for niothing! This presents a range of Chagall's work with some interesting history, provided mainly by Marc Chagall himself who... More

Irritatingly, only two rooms of paintings. Not much more. Special exhibits closed. It seems like the museum is just there to advertise for the cafe. Also: parking is very difficult to find, unless you pay (which is expensive). Disappointing.

The museum was worth it as I was interested in seeing Chagall's biblical paintings. If you are not interested in seeing these, then don't visit the museum as it's all they have. Museum is small, can see everything in less than 1 hour.

This museum is well worth a no 15 bus ride up the hill from the old town. Loved it .. So much I went back for a second visit within the week. Truly fantastic setting for these wonderful huge canvasses. Don't miss the auditorium .. Great windows.

For those who love, or even like modern art, definitely worthwhile. Increased my appreciation of this great painter. Must see the movie!

Difficult to find on foot and best bit was the cafe which served decent snack from a very small kitchen. Paintings not great by my taste and does not take long to get round. Not free as guide book said but 10 Euro an adult. Not great value

If visiting make sure to take the audio device as it explains the paintings and what the painter. These are free as well which is unusual. Nice little outdoor cafe serving some food. Video in asuditorium a must to get to know Chagall's life. Small museum overall so well worth it.

This is one of the best individual artist museums in all of France! Yes, that's quite a statement, but I've seen many of them, and this is definitely one of my favorites. Many of the wonderfully colorful, expressive, and symbolic works of Marc Chagall are well presented, well lit, and well explained. The works include paintings large and small, sculptures,... More
