After the cathedral I thought what to do and checked TripAdvisor. Don't go there. The audio guide helps understanding, but doesn't make it more exciting.

Worth a visit after visiting the basilica of St Sernin and learning of the history of the martyred bishop. Here you can visit the excavated remains of a burial site and see lots of exhibits and models to show the development of the city from ancient times. Free with the pass tourisme from the tourist office or Tisseo transport offices... More

On a rainy afternoon, we decided to visit this museum as an alternative to take a guided walking tour . We were surprised in many ways : first , for some obscure reason , we were granted a free access to the museum , second , the displays on the first and second floors were quite interesting and we learned...

The collection is well laid out and very interesting. I struggled with the descriptions as they were only in French. (I found out afterwards that an English audio guide was available.) though it took me awhile to read the descriptions, it was so worth it! There are statues, partial frescoes, heads of emperors, household items like oil lamps and jewellery,... More

We stumbled upon this museum by chance and spent an hour wandering around the exhibits which were laid out over three floors. Very interesting to see the local history

Before travelling to Toulous I hadn't known just how long the city's history is. This museum is a fantastic example of this. There is a wonderful exposistion at the moment show casing Roman murals from the city and it even has a recreation which is beautiful and the film showing how it was made was fascinating. There are also some... More

If you are a fan of / expert in roman sculpture and artefacts, this is the place for you. I found it a little samey, but am more of a browser than a 'buff' of this period. It's right next to the Basilica, and there's a cafe just outside, so well worth a look if you are in the area.

This museum gives a fascinating glimpse of the history of Toulouse from the earliest pre-Roman days up to the present. It is well worth a visit- the only problem may be that all the descriptive panels are only in French.
