Right next to St. Sernin Bastilica, so plan to go to both. It is small, but if you are interested in the time period, you could spend hours. We watched school children drawing mosaics (art class?) and locals sketching some of the statues. We spent much more time than I thought we would.

Amazing small museum, full of nice pieces, especially the Ino's Mosaic ! The museum is free every first sunday of the month : ideal for a quick visit. You can also have a drink on the terrasse of the museum (quiet small garden) or visit some really closed places : St Sernin Basilica (with a flea market on sunday morning),... More

My wife and I found the St. Sernin basilica a quick walk-through, but figured we'd go into the next door museum as long as we were nearby. We were surprised at the number and quality of Roman-era sculptures, and fascinated by the basement sarcophogai -- placed in the area where they were discovered. We spent three times the amount of...

The primary repository for the Roman presence in the region, the collection is well curated and the exhibits are of the highest quality. You will not be overloaded as the collections are not focused on volume - very much "never mind the quantity, feel the quality". Staff were helpful, but English is not their strong point. As someone with only... More

This museum is small but has very nice pieces af roman art. It is well located, downtown. Very nice also to visit with children as it is of "human size".

This museum is very close to the Basilica of Saint Sernin, but its strength is in its collections of ancient Roman art, and especially portraits from the Roman imperial period (1st to 4th centuries AD).
