Founded in 1966 when the artist donated his Biblical Message (a vast cycle of seventeen paintings based on the book of Genesis), the Musée National Message Biblique Marc Chagall or Marc Chagall Museum in Nice is one of three national museums in the department (along with the Picasso Museum in Vallauris and the Fernand Léger Museum in Biot).

The museum today offers a comprehensive overview of the work of painter Marc Chagall. Chagall’s work is marked by a profound spirituality, and the museum places it in the broader context of the history of contemporary art.
