Incredible. Really worth a visit. One does not realise just what a gifted and tallented artist Toulouse-Lautrec was. One knows of the poster art but there is so much more. The museum is well laid out and one can spend as long or as short as necessary. After visiting the museum, there are the beautifully laid out gardens of the... More

The town of Albi is quiet and quite beautiful. The church is magnificent and towers over the square. The museum is excellent. A glimpse into the life of Toulouse Lautrec. Old photos and art work; some very familiar pieces and some very different from what you expect from this artist.

This is a beautiful museum dedicated to the works of Toulouse-Lautrec. It is just next to the Cathedral, so it's convenient to see them together. There are many interesting works to see, and the gardens in the back are very beautiful. Great views of the river and the bridge from the upper floors as well. We enjoyed our visit very... More

A day-trip out of Toulouse. We took train from Matabiau Gare to Albi, a short walk into town, a lovely lunch across from the cathedral & museum, the museum & gardens, a walk down to the old bridge, a cold cup of frozen glace before leaving town...a delightful day. The museum is very well done, a good history of T-L...his... More

Very interesting with informative historical information in each room. Don't get caught taking photos! Students from the 70's will recognise Les Ambassadeurs / Aristide Bruant posters

One the first visit 35 years ago, the museum was a dark forbidding place. It took seven years of arduous restoration, but what's offered now is wonderful experience with good supporting information and old photos of Latrec alongside his studies for famous painting handing elsewhere. There's a nice collection of modernists as well.

Toulouse Lautrec is well known name, nevertheless his work is not so wide known, he died young but one can see the potential he had. Many of his work is unique, he is good imitating, creating his own style, depicting his time and the idiosyncrasy of France. If you like art this museum is for you!
