Superb selection of works dated from just before WW2 to the mid 50's which encapsulate Chagall's response to war, changes in his Russian homeland, his Jewish faith and the death of his wife. Highly recommended. Last day of exhibition is 21 July 2013. Inevitable down side is the crowd (its very popular) and the fact that the vestiare is too small to handle demand to store coats and bags.

Wonderful exhibition of Chagall's work. Very nice, manageable size. My only criticism is that some of the spaces are quite small so it was a bit crowded in places and hard to see the paintings without pushing people out of the way. This was exacerbated by a lot of text on the wall and audio guides so visitors are stood still for long periods of time. But very good in spite of this!

This exhibition of Chagall's experiences before during and immediately after the war years is stunning . The pictures are well displayed , in chronological order , although there is no printed information in English so an audio guide or downloading the app would be very useful . As always in Paris whatever the weather or time of day there is always a queue to get in to any good exhibition so if possible buy a ticket online with a time slot and you can more or less walk straight in but you need to plan ahead as the number of tickets for each time period is limited . Even after you are allowed to enter the building if you don't have a ticket you have to queue again to buy one and then queue to leave your coats and finally queue to get in but believe me it is worth it . Once inside it is still busy -late in the day is probably quieter .There is a gift shop and cafe

Went here as the line at D'Orsay was cray cray(2 + hours?!) no thanks...

The museum featured impressionism from Le Havre region- they have plenty of audio tours and brochures in English and French, and the exhibitions change from time to time, Chagall is there in a week or two...

There's a coat room and a cute gift shop. If you want to skip the Angelina(hot chocolate, amazing pastries) line at rue de rivoli, there's a small one here that's great for after the visit!

This is a charming little museum just across the road from the Senate in the Luxembourg Gardens. They can have really stimulating exhibitions on so it is worth checking before you go to Paris to make sure you catch the dates. Dec 2012 they had an exhibition of the Le Havre school of Impressionist painters - the B team perhaps - but thoroughly fascinating. We didn't go for Angelina restaurant connected with the museum because we had tried Angelina at another museum (not their original restaurant in the 8th which is lovely) We felt they just coasted on the name and were over priced and uninspiring.
