Many travelers recommend making the Chagall Museum (think stained glass and colorful, surreal artwork) a part of your itinerary. But they insist that you come prepared by bringing your passport (or driver's license if you're a French citizen) for admittance. Like the Matisse Museum, this surreal arthouse is located in Cimiez and is best reached via bus No. 15.

Recent visitors suggest that you look into Marc Chagall's work before you make the trek to this museum. Those who are familiar with and appreciate the painter's work will probably enjoy this museum. Those who aren't big fans might want to spend their time elsewhere. If you do decide to go to make the trek, be sure to check out more than just the artwork. The gallery itself is a piece of modern architecture, with touches like beautiful stained-glass windows.

Adult admission costs 10 euros (about $12) for adults; youths 17 and younger enter for free. The museum welcomes visitors from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. from May to October and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. from November to April. Note that the museum is closed on Tuesdays. For more information, visit the museum's website.
