Apart from there being a distinct lack of absinthe -- TL's favourite tipple - on offer methinks he would heartily approve of the gallery sporting hundreds of his works from his original posters to portraits and the seamier demi monde of late 19th century Paris. Well laid out, well hung and well light the gallery/museum is a delight to go... More

This museum has lots of works not taken by the Paris museums after Toulouse-Lautrec died. Lots of early drawings (from age 11!) and preliminary sketches of well known works. A great way to see the process!

This extensive and comprehensive exhibition of the works of Toulouse-Lautrec should not be missed. The building, itself, is stunning and its conversion to art gallery has been done in a most sensitive and creative way. We rented the audio guide. It worked very well and gave just enough information to inform without 'overloading'. If you love and know the artist,... More

The best collection of Toulouse-Lautrec's paintings for sure. He is my favorite post-impressionist, so we went to Albi specifically to see his work. I was very concerned that our visit fell on Ascension Day which is a Holiday in France. I had emailed the museum staff ahead of time and got a prompt confirmation that the museum will be opened...

Fantastic collection of Toulouse Lautrec housed in a wonderful building (Berbie Palace).Put this on the "must do" list even if you're not a fan of the artist - the building is wonderful.

Set in the pretty town of Albi, the museum is a fantastic collection of Lautrec's work. Well curated and with excellent explanations on the audio guide.

Just below the Cathedral, and in the former bishop's palace is the highlight of a visit to Albi: the collection of paintings by the city's most famous inhabitant. First of all, the building itself is great - well maintained, well signed and fascinating architecturally. Secondly, there is a delightful garden over looking the river. But best of all is the...

The life of Toulouse Latrouc himself is very interesting. His representation of the life around the cafe scene in Paris in the late 1800s is really good. Added to this are the prints of the advertising posters that are a separate art form altogether. The building in which the musee is housed is worth a visit in itself.

I was really worried that the museum would be closed on a Monday.......as it was the only day we were in Albi......but it was open. It's a beautiful building, an amazing exhibition. It was very interesting to find out about the life and art of Toulouse-Lautrec. Very special! Go early in summer!
