Only two of the three gallery floors were open so it was somewhat disappointing. The beautiful looking floor 1 (shown on the home page of the website) is closed. Thus, there are no windows and no large collection of busts. I was really looking forward to that. Only the basement and top floor which both had good displays were open.... More

Im sure this exhibition would be good for those who had an interest in the history of Toulouse and who can read French. There area three levels: in the basement is the old lime oven and sarcophages. On the other levels were lots of fragments of buildings, pottery, jewellery etc that were found on the site as well as numerous... More

This musée contains archaeological finds from the Toulouse and south of France area from Roman and early Christian sites. The basement has C4th sarcophagi from the Visigoth early Christian settlement in the Toulouse area. I found them wonderful. There is a fascinating excavation in one corner. One the first floor there are huge marble pieces from an excavated Roman villa... More

Well organized, clean museum with many archeological treasures and several photos taken many years ago. Dedicated mainly to findings in the Bordeaux area. Tourist friendly with elevator that will cover four levels of treasures. Gift shop, bathrooms inside and a small café outside.

It was interesting to see some of the archeological history of Toulouse. But it was only okay. If you had a couple of days in Toulouse I wouldn't worry about seeing this unless ou really love archeology and can read french.

We went here not knowing what to expect but anticipating a museum based on modern era France (from the time of Raymond onwards). The museum however is dedicated to earlier history with a lot of amazing artefacts from Roman times. It's astonishing to be able to see these items up close and in person. The museum spreads over 4 levels... More

It was worth the visit, slightly out of the centre of Toulouse. I reached it by Metro and tram, about 20 minutes from the Tourist Information Centre. The site has been restored using the famous pink Toulouse bricks which probably weren't what the Romans used! The monument is run by the City and is a nice relaxing place to eat... More

a lovely 4 story museum that covers Toulousan history from Roman times through medieval. Three floors are dedicated to a perfect little summary of the history and development of Toulouse with artifacts and models in a beautiful building next to Saint Sernin. On weekends, there is a flea market outside. Has a great little restaurant in the garden. And even... More

Wonderful relics from the Roman days (100 yrs Before Christ onwards). The mind boggles to think of what was created in those days and how well preserved it is. Everything here is in French - so understanding it helps with building the story. The underground necropolis is a real treat. The first Sunday of the month is free to visit-... More

This museum has an interesting collection of mostly Roman remains. It's housed in an attractive medieval building opposite the St Sernin basilica. There are three floors of exhibits and it's a pleasant way to spend an hour or two. Information in English is quite limited. I found the display on the first floor - sculptures from Chiragan, a site near... More
