Marc Chagall Museum

The Call of Chagall

Save to my Account

Nice is s city of art and its no surprise that Russian-born Marc Chagall also found his way to the French Riviera, inspired by the mild weather and colorful sea and landscapes.

The museum near the leafy neighborhood of Cimiez brings together the biggest public collection of works (painting, sculpture, mosaics, and more) by the artist including his important biblical works including 17 large canvas that make up the Biblical Message, painted by the artist in his vibrant style and gifted to the French State in 1966. The museum itself is a work of art: light and cool with large windows framing the outside greenery that harmonize well with his trademark bright colors.

Chagall helped open the museum in 1973 and was active until his death in 1985. He’s buried in the cemetery in the hilltop village of St-Paul-de-Vence, not far from Nice.

Admission to the museum  is €9 bur free the 1st Sunday of each month. Citizens of EU under the age of 26 are also free.

Opening Hours:

November to April  10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
May to October  10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
