  • Not sure why this museum received so many good reviews… it’s small and doesn’t have much content. I REALLY took my time looking around and was done in about an hour. I wouldn’t recommend this museum.....  more

  • Museum of one of the famous artists shows nice collection of his paintings and drawings. You have to wait in line to enter. Don't come with a big backpack - they will not let you in - they don't have....  more

  • Great layout, a good number of large paintings by Chagall, and also an impressive set of prints including prints that were made for books. It is definitely worth spending a couple of hours. My only disappointment (and the reason for 4 stars instead of 5) is that the paintings are mostly picked from the religious works of Chagall, and some of the masterpieces are missing. Nonetheless, there's a sense of awe from standing in front of these paintings.
  • A must museum for those fans of Modernist Art. In this one, the visitor will find many works religion-inspired of the artist: depictions of illustrations related in the Old Testament, as the artist was Jewish. Also, some works are abstracts, free to interpretation. Chagall was as well remarked for stained glass windows, and some of them can be found in this museum.
