Marc Chagall was a russian born painter who ended his life in France after having lived in the USA. He left many artworks in France including the Paris Opera ceiling, several stained glass windows in the Metz cathedral...
The national museum in Nice exhibits artworks known as the "Biblical message". Chagall was a Jew. His paintings here refer to the Old Testament. Large, vividly colored, full of tenderness, they will appeal even to non believers and children. There are a few stained glass windows by Marc Chagall in the museum, too.
That's really the museum you must see in Nice. (According to us, at least) Visiting it can be done quickly. If you want, within an hour you'll have seen everything and have taken your time to admire the paintings. You can of course stay much longer.
