  • Beautiful well-organized museum, I did not know Chagall very well and I was enchanted by his paintings. An audio guide is also available in Italian and is free for 18- to 24-year-olds.

  • A perfect solution to a gray day in Nice. Chagall’s brilliant canvases show his inspiration from the colors of the Mediterranean in interpreting passages from the Old Testament. Free audio guides enhance the experience. Note that the extensive explanations on the audio guide mean that a visit of 2 hours minimum is needed.
  • The collection of Marc Chagall is an exquisite mirror of the eyes of the artist. The museum contains an array of collection from mosaics, stained glass, oil on canvass, water colors, and ceramics, all reflecting Chagall's belief in the perfect poem - The Bible. It is recommended to stay an hour and a half to admire the works of this national French artist.
