The purpose of the visitor regulations is to inform visitors of the conditions for visiting the Marc Chagall National Museum. They are intended to ensure the safety of people, the preservation of the premises and collections and the quality of the visit. They apply to all visitors to the museum as well as to persons and groups authorised to occupy the premises temporarily for meetings, receptions or various events.

Please download and consult the documents below (only in french):

This version of the regulation is subject to change, depending on the evolution of the national health situation.


In recent years, photography and filming in museums and monuments has become a common phenomenon that is often extended to social networks. The Ministry of Culture wanted to support the institutions and visitors' associations in the design of a charter of understanding that sets out the main rules for visiting and sharing culture in the digital age. This charter is likely to inspire other ministries, local authorities and the entire network of cultural structures in the heritage field.
