  • The building itself is worth a visit. Very cute and not too big. With three rooms brings together beautiful paintings and a few sculptures.

  • First an exceptional slightly revised by Viollet-Leduc. A superb collection of capitals. Sculptures as evidence of our history. The recumbent figure of the last count of Comminges beautiful and martial. Temporary exhibitions often unavoidable. In short to see again and again.

  • Expected not to find such peace in full Toulouse :). Interesting exhibition with a small garden in the middle. I enjoyed the architecture and chairs with view on the garden, after visiting the place is very nice to relax before you go!

  • Yes! What a place! Don't expect a huge exhibition but what it lacks in volume, it makes up for in quality and a unique setting. A former monastery, now gallery, creates an awesome blend of history and the curators have done a great job of presenting some ancient exhibits in a contemporary way. Really loved this place and it's even worth bringing your lunch to enjoy the courtyard garden
  • Truly a wonderful museum of Toulouse. Museum entry free 12 Euro per adult and school or college concession available in the entry free. Some world class oil painting and collection of old historical items in one place. Must watch place in Toulouse. Highly Recommended.
  • Great place, great paintings. First Sunday of the month is free to visit, like most museums in toulouse.
  • Beautiful museum located in an old cloister which is worth walking around in by itself. When temperatures rise in summer, the Hall of Paintings is sometimes closed for visitors in the afternoon. Go early or call in advance. The Hall is worth it.
  • Very interesting selection of works, including Renoir and the grand painting of Mehmet II entering Constantinople in 1453.
