This museum is in the center of the town, near the metro station Esquirol. If you are a college student, is free for you to visite ! They got many religious statuts from gothique period also a hand full of painting in various period. Remind that, this isn't Louvre or d'Orsay, it isn't enormous but worth to visit.

Loved the layout separating the rooms in different areas of the courtyard. Was helpful that there was English translations as well so I was able to learn about all the art and where it came from and when.

The building itself is amazing. It was built in 1309 as a convent. The church which is one of the galleries still has wall paintings. Amongst the paintings within the church is a Rubens. In the rooms off the cloisters are early religious art works including paintings, statues of saints and tombs. Fascinating! It was so incredible to see 600... More

This is a must-see if you are in Toulouse. Beautiful old convent which also houses an interesting museum. The cloisters are great with medicinal herbs planted in the centre and the gargoyles from the tower mounted as statues along one side. There is a display of the capitals that topped the columns, which sounds deadly boring, but which is shown... More

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!

This museum is free if you have a student card on you. The sculptures and paintings of the museum are absolutely beautiful, and are complemented by the astoundingly attractive courtyard that hold all of the exhibition rooms together. There are little deckchairs around the cloisters for you to sit and look at the fruit trees in the sun, which for... More

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
