This exhibit is very interesting. Several works of art from each period of Chagall's life. There is also a documentary film on his life, which is a must see.

The museum building and surrounding garden are a peaceful sight in itself. We had drinks at the garden cafe, really nice to sit outside even in November! Chagall planned the exhibition accordingly with the building's architecture, and it shows. The rooms have different themes and atmospheres. Interesting video about the artist in the auditorium is worth seeing (and a good... More

We visited on a rainy afternoon in November. There was not much else to do so we are glad we went, but would not recommend going if it is nice out or if you are considering options involving being outside and enjoying the beautiful vistas. There were several rooms and quite a bit of works available for viewing. As Chagall... More

Not as comprehensive as other galleries dedicated to one artist. The 12 biblical paintings were the main attraction. Also of interest was the wall mosaic and the 5 Canticles, plus the stained glass windows were also worth a look. Apart from that just a small collection of Chigalls work completed the museum. We were enjoying contemplating the works when 15... More

I walked from near the train station to the museum this morning. It is about a 20 minute walk somewhat up a hill. There are signs to help you get there. The museum includes headsets that explain much of the art with a cost of Euro 8. Many of the paintings were made for the museum and illustrate stories from... More

Chagall may be an acquired taste - you can get tired of happy couples floating in space with flowers and angel's wings - but this museum specialises in some of his large-scale religious works. Powerful and well displayed.

If you like art, then do not miss. You see the works of Chagall and get to understand the person behind such amazing works. The film is very interesting if you have time to sit and watch.

Very nice museum, with a limited amount of pieces on display. It is certainly worth to visit if you are an art enthusiast. If you are just looking around and have limited time, there are better things to see
