An interesting insight into Marc Chagall's art the entrance is not free so our tour guide stayed at the entrance which meant, we could have got an Uber there. Actually used Uber around the city as taxis rip tourists off. On the way there it cost me €45 while when using Uber just €20

I am not really a modern art person but I have seen some interesting modern expositions and I've found them nice or interesting. This one is kind of empty and Mr. Chagall's work ist just not my thing. This Museum ist really for Mr Chagall's or modern art lovers (imho).

I was not sure what to expect but found this to be a "must visit" if in Nice. The system to hear in ones own language about each piece was a bonus and the paintings are both stimulating and interesting

A profound exhibit of classical Chagall pieces of historical and biblical events. Large colorful canvasses in beautiful surroundings. Definitely take the free audio player to get into more depth background to the paintings.

for a rainy day... You get a perfect impression of Chagall's œuvre, of his love for his wife, his belief in religion.... Often the museum also shows temporal exhibitions that are also interesting.

Wow! I was amazed not only because of the paintings but the brilliant guide. It fully explained the story behind the pictures and drew attention for tiny details and their significance. Probably the best I've ever experienced.

This museum is small but has an excellent display of Chagall's work. The colours dazzle and the style of the paintings draw you to take a closer look while at the same time the overall impressing is one of joy. Having said that many of the topics of the paintings are sombre and have a heavy religious theme. A delightful... More

Having walked the 2 kilometre up the hill to visit the Matisse museum and the Franciscan monastery - both worth a visit - we were hungry and thirsty. But they have no associated cafes for weary travellers and are situated in a mainly residential area with no restaurants either. Fortunately on our way back down the hill we chanced on... More
