  • Walk up to the Museum. Now 2 rooms under renovation. Reduced prices. Listen in the handset if Chagall's life as a Jew and an artist in Vitebsk.

  • Beautiful museum with a very insightful audio guide tour and a full length documentary in the theater. Mostly features Chagall's biblical works. Worth the visit if you're in Nice and enjoy art. The grounds are also lovely and there is a small cafe. Beware that parking is a challenge here, with a tiny parking lot for 6-7 cars -- and not for the novice navigator unless you want a few new scratches on your car, and the rest is street parking on a narrow and winding street that was packed.
  • The size of the museum took me by surprise for the amount I had to pay at the door but there is a lot of information in there. I would highly recommend getting the audio guide as you do need it to understand Chagall's paintings. I love the colors he used in his paintings to illustrate his thoughts. I spent more time here than in Museé Matisse.
