Would recommend anyone to visit, take the audio guide is a must and is highly informative. The museum say the average visit takes a little more than an hour but it took us 2 hours.

A great collection of his work spread over 20+ rooms in this amazing old palace. It was good the ticket allowed access to have a break for lunch.

Well curated exhibits in a lovely, historic building. Toulouse-Lautrec's mother kept everything he ever doodled or drew, including the end pages of his schoolbooks, and it is all here. The museum leads you through his life and work, showing his progression from a skilled realist to the development of his own style. Really interesting for those fascinated by the creative... More

Toulouse Lautrec is not my favourite artist, but the museum seemed to do him justice and made me want to know more about him and his life.His art does seem to reflect the turbulance of his existence The museum is easy to find being beside the Tourist Information Office.

The combination of a great collection of Toulouse-Lautrec's work (as well as some historical exhibits) with the Palais de la Berbie, where it is housed, made for a satisfying experience. In addition, the Palais includes a magnificent garden with gorgeous views of the river and the town.

Don't get us wrong, we love all sorts of art and we really appreciate all types, but this guy struggled. Occasionally we saw a painting worth looking at but most of the time we were thinking our kids have done better! Given that Albi, as beautiful as it undoubtedly is, is not famous for anything at all really, it is... More

My traveling companion and I found Albi to be a lovely quintessential French village and the Toulouse Lautrec museum surprisingly well designed for an enlightening 'tour' of the artist's work and too short life. I would recommend this exhibit and museum for young and old as well as new and seasoned art enthusiasts. One audio guide is sufficient as the... More

This is more than just a museum about Toulouse-Lautrec as there is a really good exhibition about the history of the city of Albi and the construction of the palace where the museum is located. I would definitely recommend visiting the museum before you visit the cathedral. Also, do not miss the gardens of the museum (free to visit). These... More
