  • I really like the idea of a contemporary art museum built on the premises of a former slaughterhouse. The museum is not very big, and the temporary exhibitions I have seen so fare are just ok, but if you pass by it might be worth the visit.
  • Actually the best museum in Toulouse to understand the different periods and people/invaders that have agregated in Toulouse for 3000 years. Back to Celtic invaders from the Rhine region who produced remarkable gold items and jewelries , then the Greek and Roman traders and Roman administration for 3O years , and new invaders: from nowadays Ukraine and Romania, Muslims, and Vandals from the eastern plains of Mongolia... Excellent place to understand the histiry of Toulouse
  • Really interesting, from an archeologists point of view anyway!
  • A must see!
  • Bell'allestimento on three floors dedicated to the archaeological heritage of the area, from the Gallic until late Antiquity. Going in may 2017 educational installation devoted to black-figure attic pottery ("the vase speak"), quite impressive. To visit (not only for fans of Archeology).
