Wow. Is all I can say. The collection is huge, well displayed and informative. It shows the ages and techniques Henri Toulouse-Lautrec went through before he came famous with his classic Moulin Rouge poster type art. For €9 it's a bargain and the views as you walk around are incredible.

A nice collection of Lautrec. The museum description boasts of a grand collection, which I would say is exaggerated. Most of the later works include posters and drawings, which is fitting because Lautrec was a consummate draughtsman. There are some very nice paintings done late in his career, but many of the earlier works do not show the mastery of... More

Albi is a really pretty medieval town, easily accessible from Toulouse by train, and the Toulouse-Lautrec museum is very much worth a visit. It's housed in the beautiful old bishops' palace, next to the famous, must visit cathedral. The collection of the artist's work is really interesting, from his early works as a boy on the country estate, to the... More

be prepared to spend a good few hours as there are lots of exhibits to see. Very informative with information in several languages. Both the building and the exhibits were well worth seeing.

Besides loving his work, you can admire the inside of the palace where the museum is located. Totally worth a visit!

This museum looks small from the outside, but actually rambles on and on in the bishops' palace. The collection of the work of Toulouse is extensive and includes drawings, posters and paintings. A must see!

An amazing collection of Lautrec's work. Wall to wall enjoyment. It was surprising to see the range of his talent. The museum building itself is fantastic.

What with all the sketches and draft- drawings there a a large number of rooms to see. It therefore pays one (in tme saved) to be selective over which works to dawdle in front of. The curator's prepared information on some of the works are (likewise) somewhat sketchy.

Set in the Archbishop's palace between the cathedral and river Tarn, this rambling ancient edifice contains the most exceptional collection of Toulouse-Lautrec works of art. This museum for art lovers is well worth an extensive detour just to see
