  • This museum, which seems little has everything a great. It has several rooms with different themes which makes the younger as adults will find a room that would please them more or less. To discover this place, it is better to do it with a museum guide who will share with you his knowledge. You can do this with young children for a first discovery on Art and local culture.

  • A visit to Toulouse which enabled us to discover a city of great beauty. This Museum of fine arts opened in 1795 is unquestionably a place that must be discovered! The sculptures and paintings are very well developed. A sense of tranquility in the cloister with these pretty plants.

  • The oldest museum in Toulouse and one of the oldest in France. A must-see for tourists and locals. Nicely located and calm. Great collection of art from all over the Midi-Pyrenees area. Worth the detour.
  • Magnifique
  • Nice museum, pretty nice exhibitions and garden. Tip: in the first Sunday of every month the museums in toulouse are free, and not very crowded (at least during my visit...)
  • Memorial place
  • This is the classical art museum of Toulouse. Because the city did not have much wealth in the last 400 years you will not have as robust a collection as you might find in the like museum in Bordeaux. That being said, it's worth a visit and the architecture is worth the visit itself.
