This museum is well worth the trip - Marc Chagall was a truly inspirational artist and many of his works can be seen here. The staff at the museum are really nice and helpful and.... there is even a coffee shop (not frequently found in French museums!). This is a matter of taste but I feel the artwork was presented badly and unimaginatively, in a building that left me feeling unmoved.

The colors and variety of Chagall's paintings, especially his old testament cycle, are mind blowing. No way a reproduction can replicate what you see here. Highly recommended, even for Philistines who don't necessarily appreciate modern art. This might change your mind.

A small but complete collection. The stained glass is glorious - and the Song of Songs sublime. Do look at his photograph - the expression in his eyes.

I was very surprised to find this museum to be so wonderful after reading many reviews about the small size of the collection etc... But it was really the perfect size for engaging intimately with Chagall, both the large scale biblical works and the smaller, more secular works. It was a lovely space in which I could have stayed all afternoon. I also really enjoyed the small café- mediocre food but for a decent price and good respite from the rain! If you visit one museum in Nice, it should either be here or the Matisse museum.
