I do recommend the audioguide (for the four extra euros), because without it, the experience will be much less absorbing. That mentioned, actually finding some of the paintings that the audioguide is linked to is a royal pain. After the tour (of about two hours), I had a headache, and that was, I'm sure, largely to do with the way... More

This museum had the comprehensive collection of the works of Toulouse-Lautrec. He may not be your favourite impressionist but he was the first notable commercial artist and it was worthwhile to visit. The bonus is that the museum is in the bishop's palace just beside the cathedral.

A well put together exhibition and time line of T-L from his early years to his more renown works. Also the explanations of the processes he used are very informative. The other galleries are worth a look too in this lovely building.

This beautiful red brick building provides an appropriate setting to discover the works of Toulouse-Lautrec and other artists. I was initially put off by the list of 'dont's' that greets the visitor, in particular 'no photography' but having got immersed in the atmosphere created here I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The delightful views over the Tarn and the town of... More

Not over crowded, and a tranquil environment to look at the pictures. Very modern clean facilities. Could do more with the signage

Since I did not know much about this artist, I wasn't sure what to expect. I not only learned about this famous artist but I enjoyed seeing all of his works. In each room there is an informational fact sheet in various languages giving explanation to what you are viewing. There are also places to sit. I spent several hours... More

We visited as part of a day trip to Albi and were not disappointed. I didn't know much about Toulouse-Lautrec beforehand, but the volume and variety of his work was huge. The museum is very well presented and housed in a stunning bishop's palace next to the cathedral, which is almost worth the visit in itself.
