We decided to visit on museum in Toulouse and found this one to have great works of art! The Augustinian convent was built in the 14th centuryand since 1793 has been the Museum of Fine Arts in Toulouse. This is a fantastic space that combines the beauty of its cloister, the elegance of church to unique collections in Europe. The... More

Small and well organized. The exhibits themselves are very artistically set. Some excellent displays. Definitely worth the 5€ euro entry fee which is good for the whole day. And just around the corner is St. George square where you can find plenty of cafés for a refreshment break.

Very friendly staff. Beautiful building. Loved roaming around the different halls by ourselves. Quality of the painting and sculputure is very high. Not just their famous Madonna, but also the seventeenth-century prophets in the church impressed us. Loved the hall of pillar-heads/capitols. Great modern way of displaying them and excellent info in English and French provided for each piece. Go... More

The building itself is old and makes a nice exhibition space. There are a few interesting pieces, but overall the works on display are only of middling value.

The museum has some excellent pieces like Delacroix's "Moulay Abd-er-Rahman, Sultan of Morocco Leaving the Palace in Meknès with his Entourage" or Eugène Thivier's "Nightmare" which almost comes close to soft-core pornography. The museum however is not huge and walking through it doesn't take very many hours. This museum is therefore a nice distraction if you are in town, but... More

The best thing about this museum is the building itself. It's worth visiting just for this. In addition you get to see a bunch of religious relics, statues and paintings. You even get to see some Toulouse Lautrec. Worth a quick visit, especially if you go on one of the days that you can get in for free. Look it... More

Keep going - there's more in every section of the building. The paintings and sculptures are quite a treasure. Not always easy to find everything - staff is quite helpful when asked.

The museum is housed in an old church with cloisters - there is a lovely garden within the cloisters. The museum exhibits a fine range of paintings, statuary and fine art. Although situated in the centre of Toulouse, it is a haven of peace and tranquility. Well worth a visit.

This is well worth a visit if you're in Toulouse and interested in art. It's housed in a converted monastery just a few minutes walk from the Place du Capitole. There are several sections, arranged around a peaceful central courtyard (with deckchairs, if you fancy a nap!). The sections are: - medieval religious sculpture (14/15c) from churches in the Toulouse... More

On a particularly hot busy day in Toulouse, it was nice to step into the air conditioned quiet of the Museum. My partner was asked to leave his small day sack at the reception which we thought was a bit overkill seeing as it was only big enough for a few papers and maybe a bottle of water. I got... More
