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. It is a unique museum in the sense that never before a... More

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

Chagall had a great deal of input on this museum and it displays his biblical paintings to perfection.

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

Fabulous gallery of Chagalls biblical masterpieces. Superb stained glass windows and tapestries. Don't miss the outside wall across the water feature.

Even if you are not interested in the biblical iconography of many of his works, his use of color and floating sometimes whirling subject matter is worth a visit to see up close. There is a cafe in the garden for a bite to eat or a beer. The movie sometimes is shown in English.

The Chagall Museum is just the right size to go through in about 90 minutes. The head phones work well and give the history and insight to many of his works that are on display. Easy to get to by bus.
