I actually did not know of this place until I checked in in a nearby hostel. I love the works by Leger. It's a nice and welcoming museum that show a nice overview on works. It's highly recommended if your into Fernand Léger!!!

This most exceptional museum on the work of Léger is actually worth the journey. The exterior is decorated with huge mosaics by Léger. They give the building its character. Very convincing collection. You really will get an overview on Léger's work.

Fernand Leger was a contemporary of Picasso, Matisse, Magritte and Marcel Duchamp - yet he isn't as well-known as these artists. But his art is certainly up there with these big names. He made a huge contribution to modern art in the first half of...More

If you don't know the work of Fernard Leger, this is the place to discover it. A totally civilised museum in a beautiful setting which does all it can to show Leger's progression from post-impressionism through Cubism to tubism. Suggestions: buy the catalogue and take...More

I don't know where you're staying. In case it's Nice, like I did, I'd tell you to go by train to Biot. When you get there, take the bus number 10. The closest stop to Léger's museum is named after the artist. There's no way... More

We travelled by train from Nice to BIOT. The station is 4km out od the city centre. Take a bus number 10 and the 4th stop is Fernand Legere museum. BIOT village is the 10th stop and is worth visiting.
