This was a great way to see Toulouse-Lautrec's life story and many of his works set out in a very sympathetic way. The exhibition told his life story, through his work. The building and grounds are also superb and give a great vista of the River Tarn.

Wonderful portrait of the artists work. Good audio guide. The layout is a little confusing. But this is well worth the trip.

If you go to Albi and you like French painters, go see. Heck, together with the cathedral, it is worth a detour. Just a spoiler/teaser: Toulouse Lautrec was the trend starter for artsy ad posters. He also experimented with photography. River bridge view from the Episcopal Palace terrace hosting the museum is one of the best in France, in my... More

When you are in Albi you must visit the Musee Toulouse Lautrec The building is very impressive , but the most impressive of that visit are the gardens . As regards the exhibition it is quite interesting but I suppose that some of the most improtant pieces of the artist where missing .

The collections is astonishing and the presentation is amazing. Using the historic old building to weave people in and out of rooms was fun and the gardens were beautiful.

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.
