“Fascinating Audio Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

This work is dedicated to Chagall's interpretation of the bible and it was unexpectedly educational and wonderful. The audio does a great job of interpreting the paintings and I learned a lot. It is a quick, easy museum to enjoy and well worth the visit. It is one of the first museums to be built while the artist was still alive to help direct it's creation.

“Not worth the money”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

Nine euros to see a selection of Chagall's religious works did not constitute good value. The staff were very offhand, and to ask for identity before you could hire an audio guide is ridiculous.

My advice is to go further up the hill and see the magnificent Matisse Museum for free.

Very nice museum dedicated to some religious artwork of Chagall. Worth visiting. A little expensive though...

“smaller than expected”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2013

Good impression from outside, but it was a bit smaller than I expected and you had to pay comparing with some of the museums were free and nicer in Nice. Very small garden. If you have plenty of time to explore, you can have a go, if your time limited, skip over.

“Visit at the beginning of December 2013”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2013

Great setting, helpful staff, interesting history to how the building came about and a solid audio guide to take you through all the Chagall pieces. A definite must see when in Nice
