We went there at last on the tip of friends with a large knowledge of modern art. Modern it is, indeed, but we left the museum with a "feel good" in our mind and body. With a "headset" to listen to comments on the different pictures it was interesting to listen to his development from standard paintings - if that... More

This museum probably has the worlds largest collection of works by Fernand Leger, but only 40 paintings were shown (out of appr 380). Some are very good, and give a fine impression of Legers excellent oeuvre, but also a sense that this museum has a lot more to offer. The outdoor mosaics are impressive.

A small but exquisite Museum showing the delicious and surprising art of Fernand Leger. The mosaics and wall carpets are outstanding, the paintings spectacular andthe whole grounds immaculate. A must for lovers o modern Art.

We were not going to go to this museum until friend said that, even if you don't love the Leger one sees in US museums, you must see this place. We are so glad we did. It is a wonder: a beautiful structure displaying not only Leger's painted canvasses but also his spectacular mosaics, ceramics and other works. Set beautifully.

Just so unique that it is a must see if you are anywhere near by in Nice, Antibes or even Cannes. Well worth the detour on the way to visiting Biot.

Everything will make this "Leger experience" unique : the location, the choice of works, the architecture, the garden. Biot is still a small preserved village and the museum stands on high grounds, surrounded by nature. Specifically designed to house a large donation of major works, including some huge mosaics and sculptures, it is well lit, air-conditioned, vast and welcoming. The... More

They decided to close 60 mins early despite a group booking made 5 months ago, confirmed 1 month ago. We were given 15 mins. They coudn't care less. They don't deserve visitors. Or jobs.

Was looking forward to visiting this museum and had anticipated a small, somewhat old-fashioned museum - how wrong I was! Like lots of museums and galleries in this area, the light and layout of the building complemented the paintings beautifully. We were there first thing one morning, and I think we were the only visitors. Definitely a highlight and certainly... More

Leger gallery was a revelation I knew many famous painters lived and worked in Provence but the quality of the paintings at this gallery near Biot was a revelation- well worth a visit and the gallery does credit to a 20th century master
