  • Nice little Museum, but above all the building is beautiful around the cloister, the calm contrasts with the activity of the boulevard, it is superb! a visit to toulouse.

  • Both the building that houses the Museum as the exhibited collection are worth. The entrance is €5 although they offer different discounts (students, groups, families...)

  • 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.
