Marc Chagall House Museum

Lonely Planet review

Across the town's river, a good 20-minute walk away from the Chagall Museum, is the Marc Chagall House Museum, where the artist lived as a child for 13 years between 1897 and 1910 – a period beautifully evoked in his autobiography, My Life . The simple, small house contains photographs of Chagall and his family, various Jewish knick-knacks and some period furniture. It leads out into a garden and is very evocative of a simple Jewish-Russian childhood.
