This small museum houses the largest public collection of works by Belarusian painter Marc Chagall (1887–1985). The main hall contains 12 huge interpretations (1954–67) of stories from Genesis and Exodus. In an antechamber, an unusual mosaic of Elijah in his fiery chariot, surrounded by signs of the zodiac, is viewed through a plate-glass window and reflected in a small pond.

The excellent audioguide is available in English (you will need ID as deposit). Smartphone users can also download the commentary as an app. It takes about 20 minutes to walk to the museum from the city centre (signposted from av de l’Olivetto).
