The Musée Léger in Biot is an art museum on the French Riviera dedicated to the work of the French 20th-century artist Fernand Léger.
Opened in 1969, the museum was built on a plot of property acquired by Léger himself shortly before his death, in 1955. Together with the Musée Chagall in Nice and the Musée Picasso in Vallauris, it forms the triad of French National museums in the Alpes-Maritimes department dedicated to the great artists of the 20th century who lived in the area.

The museum has the largest collection in the world of Fernand Léger’s artworks, comprising paintings, sculptures, drawings, ceramics, and tapestries, displayed on rotation, through semi-permanent exhibitions. The museum also organizes conferences, guided visits, and workshops for adults and children.

At the museum, a beautiful Mediterranean garden, a cinema, and a restaurant are available.
