“If you already like Chagall's work then you'll enjoy the museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

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.

“Marvel,cry and embrace the genius of Chagall”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

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 this cleverly designed facility,you will find paintings and sculptures that will evoke humor, whimsy and pathos as you wander in fixated amazement at the 12 huge paintings of stories from Genesis and Exodus. There are also tapestries and mosaics inspired by biblical themes of the Old Testament.
The site is set in the hills of Cimiez,surrounded by pools and gardens. It is a devotion to the legacy of Chagall's life, told through hundreds of oil paintings,lithographs,drawing,as well as,ceremics and windows.
It will make your heart soar,weep perhaps, but certainly be elevated to a state of purity.
Tip.....check out the film on his life.....it will flesh out depth to your experience
Tip.....Out in the garden,in the kiosk .order a drink that includes Kir and Cassis white wine. It will start you on another fine discovery.

“Great self guided tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

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.

“Gives a Real Insight into Chagall's Religious Works”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

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.
