The museum is both a great tribute and excellent collection of the artist's works. Whilst not an art gallery expert, it was just a great experience to walk through the gallery and appreciate the painting and sketches of this famous artist whom I have been a fan of, and now become an even greater one. The gallery is located within... More

Sadly we did not have the time to visit the museum and instead chose to walk around the garden. Beautifully designed and laid out flower beds and a stunning riverside walk. Quite a bit of climbing involved but, if you can, it's worth it.

Due to lack of time on our visit and the glorious weather, we just visited the gardens adjoining the Musee. There was no charge for entrance. It was lovely to stroll through and also view the river below and other areas of Albi. Check out some of the photographs to get a flavour.

The building in which the Musee Toulouse-Lautrec is housed is extremely interesting by itself. Added to that the Toulouse-Lautrec collection is fascinating, especially if, like me, you are a fan of the artist. There was also a visiting exhibiton by Maillol which was superb - not an artist I had been familiar with before but am now a fan

Adjoining the Cathedrale Sainte - Cecile, is the Palais de la Berbie , with its high walls and formal gardens, now housing the Musee Toulouse - Lautrec. The building itself has a fascinating history. Originally built as a stronghold in the thirteenth century, it was transformed and enlarged by successive bishops. The Toulouse-Lautrec galleries were inaugurated in 1922 thanks to... More

A visit to the Toulouse-Lautrec Museum shows the skills of this artist to perfection. There are several rooms to explore with not only the portraits expected of him but also several studies of horses.

Well laid out, well illuminated and in a sympathetically restored ancient building. This is a place to keep on returning to, as there is so much to see. It contains many of Toulouse-Lautrec's well known and also minor works, in addition to those of other artists. Recommended.

We're not much of art buffs, but Lautrec is very accessible. The range and variety of his work is quite remarkable, with many works quite unlike what you would expect. Interesting building too.

This museum is situated in a beautiful building, with the art work well lit and well displayed. There is plenty of information in three different languages (French, German and English) in all the rooms. There is so much to see, not only the work of Toulouse Lautrec, but of other artists as well, that you could easily spend several hours... More

The largest collection of Toulouse Lautrec, and well worth a visit. Interesting to see the lesser known paintings.
