History abounds in this museum that was formerly an Augustinian monastery. It's beautifully arranged with antiquities. Wonderful sculptures on display.

Am excellent museum, built inside a convent. It has a beautiful cloister with many gargoyles, chapel, beautiful eaculturas and two large halls with great pictures. There is a not very big museum, but lacks the architecture and the works. It's a great tour!

A beautiful building which houses a superb collection. The Musée is not so large as to be overwhelming but is of an intimate size yet with a wide variety of interesting objects spanning many centuries and many items saved from the destructive turbulence of the Revolution. I particularly enjoyed the sculptures, many of which are worthy of close study, the... More

The collection is situated in an old monastry and contains master pieces from 3 churces and monastries in old Toulouse. There are many column capitals and sculptures from the romanesque and gothic periods. The overall quality of items on display is high.

This art museum, entry €4, is contained within a fabulous medieval monastery built at the beginning of the 14th century. It is built of those red bricks that make Toulouse famous as the pink city. There was an excellent excellent exhibition on when I went there by Benjamin Constant, with his artworks gathered from all around the world, really worth... More

The Musee des Beaux-Arts de Toulouse is housed in a beautiful building, a former convent, which has been restored in a sensitive manner and accommodates the sculpture, paintings and other works of art in a series of sophisticated and sympathetic spaces. Indeed, the great variety of scale of the halls, galleries and, in particular, the cloisters surrounding a small cultivated... More
