This is definitely worth a day trip over from Eze or Cannes if you are staying at a great location.......Probably the best "boutique" museum in the world in my humble opinion.........all Chagall and all about the deliverable of humanity from evil.......very gripping.....he definitely is worthy of sainthood for his gift to the world in this sacred spot!

After having seen a bit of work of Chagall on several other occasions I was a bit apprehensive about going to this museum. However, particularly his large biblical works in the large hall definitely convinced me of the qualities of Chagall. Particularly the use of a narrow pallet and basic colors and the crowds flocking to mourn or rejoice moved... More

There is a lot of explanation of Chagall's symbolism, and if you like his work then you'll love the museum. On the other hand, if you don't like his work already then this probably won't change your mind. The setting is very nice, and it is possible to see the whole museum in an hour.

Just the name alone creates the interest.The Marc Chagall National museum of Biblical Message is a stunning collection displaying the largest body of works by the genius. He is the most emotionally evocative jewish artist of the 20th century. The pictorial joy and sorrow depicted in his harvest of works are complimented by his magic in stained glass windows. Within...

If you have any interest in Chagall, you have to listen to the self guided tour as you browse. 3 weeks later I am still in awe over Chagall's work.

Well worth a visit to get close to and examine works by Chagall associated with the decoration of the Chapel in Vence. Quite expensive to enter for an adult durin expo 'Chagall front of the mirror self-portraits, couples and appearances' at 10 euros.

The paintings were amazing. However, you do not get a true appreciation without listening to the provided audio. We had to take a bus to get there, but it was well worth it.

Count my wife and I in the excellent category in reviewing the Chagall Museum. I was not expecting the size of the collection and was very happily surprised. The film about his works was a nice touch. Please take the tme to visit if you appreciate this great artist.
