The museum is lovely. The building its housed in is just as wonderful to visit as is the museum. My only criticism is that, in some rooms, the lighting could be improved, so that the art is better highlighted.

This renovated building is a wonderful setting to showcase the work of one of Albi's sons, the renowned painter Toulouse-Lautrec. Many of his truly great paintings are owned by museums around the world but there is enough here to satisfy. In fact, the childhood notebooks and drawings donated by his mother are exquisite and demonstrate the pride the woman felt... More

Unless you are a really big Toulouse Lautrec fan, this museum is nothing special for France. BUT the building is great and the surrounding gardens and view of the river Tarn are worth a trip to Albi all by themselves.

Didn't know that much about Toulouse-Lautrec before we arrived, but learned a lot! Beautiful collection of his works in a very beautiful historic building. Free loan of a wheelchair and several elevators for the various levels made this a very accessible afternoon.

This place is a blessing and not just to escape from the hot sun. Of course you have to appreciate Toulouse-Lautrec / even the children enjoyed our visit.

You gain a good appreciation of his life and work. Be aware that going through takes some time, and there are other things in the museum too - it is easy to... More

Excellent museum about Toulouse-Lautrec and his work housed in the Berbie Palace. Be sure to walk around the outside afterwards and look down on the formal gardens and river - wonderful!

I have given this an average rating as it is expensive to enter(no reductions) and all the works are under glass and the museum does not allow photography. It has, however a large display of T-L's works, if he is a favourite of yours. The museum was crowded with visitors, due I expect, to a concentration of late French 19th... More
