The Marc Chagall National Museum of Biblical Message displays the largest collection of works of Marc Chagall. Marc Chagall was born in Russia, and made his way through on the artistic scene of Europe by its original works which synthesized in a unique expression the guidelines of some of the most fashionable trends of the 20th century: Cubism, Symbolism, Fauvism, and Surrealism. Chagall is also considered one of the most representative Jewish artists of the century.

The pictorial artworks of Chagall are complemented by his work in the field of stained glass windows. One of his works in this field is also displayed at the Chagall Museum in Nice, in the auditorium where music concerts are constantly organized.

The permanent collection consists of pictorial and sculptural works by Chagall, tapestries and mosaics inspired by biblical themes of the Old Testament. The temporary exhibitions display works of sundry other artists.
