The best museum in Nice

Unique collection of Chagall works created by Chagall himself. The only place in the world where you can see so many of Chagall paintings. Very friendly staff.

I entered just as the sun came through and it took my breath away to be honest, Nice place to go and you don't... More

The state was instrumental in the construction of the Chagall museum in homage to Chagall for donating and exposing 17 large paintings representing episodes from Genesis, Exodus and the Song of Songs of the old testament that were earlier exhibited in the Louvre under the title: biblical message.

More of a gallery than a museum. It's Chagal at his best. Amazing. And easy to get to by bus (#15) or taxi.

I have visited a lot of art museums and this one is a real star! I love his work and the museum is really a must see provided you like colorful paintings. As a bonus I found the original to a painting I bought in Vietnam :-) and that is hanging on my wall at home.

This was a bonus visit as they also had a temporary Chagall tapestry exhibit at the same time. To see these works up close is a treat. The colours are amazing and the audio commentary which is available by leaving ID was a great addition to understanding the themes and storey each work tells. We spent a few hours here... More
