  • Surprisingly great art, really well displayed. The gift shop is also one of the better ones. And you can walk (though mostly up a modest slope) to the Matisse museum in about 20-25 minutes from here.  more »
  • Nice museum. Horrible staff. Not recommended for cyclists or people with standard size backpacks since they will try to tell you that a cycle helmet is the same as a motorcycle helmet with a visor...  more »
  • Very interesting museum, well curated and displaying great Chagall masterpieces. I suggest grabbing the free audio guides offered in exchange for an ID: I found them very useful to provide valuable information on the paintings and artist. My favourite part was a documentary on Chagall played in the auditorium: unfortunately not all of it is subtitled but it’s still a good experience. Enjoy your visit!
  • This is, quite possibly, my favourite art museum in the world. Chagall's artwork is overwhelming beautiful on its own, but the museum also provides the perfect setting for its exposition (one can feel Chagall's hand at every turn - it makes one wishes artists could always decide the shale of their own exhibitions). Perfect lighting, enough space to always view the works serenely... I can't recommend a visit enough!
