We thoroughly enjoyed our time in the museum galleries as well as the breathtaking surroundings. Staff is very helpful and accommodating. There is a great deal of free information in each phase of the galleries to help to learn about the artist and his inspirations. Don't miss it.

Really enjoyed both the building and the exhibition. The paintings show the progression of Lautrec's work and are beautifully hung. The written cards are clear and informative in several languages.

I visited here perhaps 20 years ago and again in September 2014. The building is the ancient Bishops Place of Albi. It is vast - enormous. Apart from the great exposition of T-L's works - so many one cannot really absorb it all, there are some features of the medieval structure which are fascinating and the adjoining renaissance garden overlooking...

Housed in an old Abbey, itself interesting to walk through, the museum is one of the best I have been in. The collection of Toulouse-Lautrc's works are extensive, well laid out and information is offered in many languages. Well worth 2 hours of your time.

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.
