The museum is located in a building which is in the grounds of the fortified area that cathedral Saint Cecile is located too. Visiting Albi is in fact visiting these 2 areas. Undoubtedly, the original works of Henri Lautrec is inspiring and as in all works of art, time is required to examine, reflect, to appreciate the effort and thinking... More

The vastest collection of Toulouse Lautrec , we had only 45 minutes ad we had to rush - Wished we had allocated more time. We did not see the works of other artists just concentrated on Toulouse Lautrec because of the time. Spectacular views of the Tarn from the gardens.

Good history and paintings regarding Toulouse-Lautrec, if would be nice to take a few photos(without flash of course) but could not, probably have trouble with those who do not understand the damage flash does, so bettere to not have photos at all. Overall a enjoyable Musee.

Toulouse-Lautrac (T-L) was one of the first artists I "discovered" back in my school days - I was living near Washington DC and saw a few of his posters/art works in the National Gallery of Art. Frankly this museum wasn't my prime interest for visiting Albi, as I wanted to see the "red" city and learn more about its history.... More

Was expecting much more since I am a big art fan. The posters you can buy show up more favorably than the actual works at the museum. First time in my life have I encountered this bizarre experience. Even the gift shop was a disappointment since this is their chance to make a lot of money. Signing to museum very... More

This museum offers a very comprehensive look at Lautrec; both in terms of his family background and the development of his craft. It requires some hiking through its extensive displays and different venues. Be sure to leave enough time -- it opens at 2PM and requires some attention to detail for real comprehension. The setting is magnificent and allows views... More

We specifically came to Albi to see the Lautrec museum and his works on display. His artwork housed and displayed here is extensive and spans most of his life. We were very pleased both with the museum itself and the Lautrec exhibits---they have other artists' works on display but come for Lautrec ,you won't be disappointed. They also have a... More

To be honest I did not take to T-L's style; too raw, sketchy, unfinished. Much of the interest is in the life and times of the artist, e.g. his depiction of "low life" in 19th century Montmartre; less so in his technical abilities. But some may love it. You need to love T-L because most of the work on show... More

Until early we arrived in Albi we were ignorant of the fact that the artist was a sone of the city-although he did leave for Paris at the age of eight. We concentrated on the Lautrec paintings and drawings, but the museum does include other collections, both permanent and transient. The Lautrec collection is extensive and compressive, giving a clear... More

This is a sizeable museum with a good range of works by, and of, Toulouse-Lautrec, housed in a beautiful building beside the river. Well worth the admission, a good place to spend a couple of hours.
