  • Permanent exhibition of local archaeological finds, temporary exhibition of work of Henri de Toulouse Lautrec, and concert of Jordi Savall & Esperion XXI. Other classical concerts are regularly proposed and of very high quality. A magical and extremely pleasant place.

  • It's a large arts centre in a very unexpected suburb with a large underground early early car collection. There is a permanent Roman history collection with some description in French about each piece. It also has a frequently changing expositions housing some very famous painters and artists (eg Lautrec and Matisse), although usually less information on these exhibits.
  • If you like roman empire history a must visit (items reference in french and german only)
  • Very good exhibitions with interesting content every 5-6 months! Worth the try!
  • Toulouse-Lautrec exhibition. More interesting for his time than his art.
  • We visited there for the Cezanne exhibit which was wonderful. The paintings were exhibited in the basement level with the upper level housing some Roman pieces unearthed in the area. When you go there, don't miss visiting the gardens which are filled with huge pieces along the walking path. The garden walk was as enjoyable as the inside area.
