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

If you travel to Albi anyway, or to see the magnificent cathedral, or you like Toulouse-Lautrec, this is a good museum for you. It contains a great deal of his artwork- paintings, sketches and posters made for various Parisian venues. The audio guild not only talked about the art but also the life of T-L. NOTE- You can purchase a... More

As part of an Odysseys Unlimited tour of France, we were taken to the Toulouse-Lautrec Museum. I did not know much about his life and works, except for posters of the Moulin Rouge. Our excellent tour guide, who had majored in art history, gave us a fascinating tour of the museum. I have found that I much more enjoy museums... More

If you find yourself in Albi then a visit to the museum is essential, €9.00 to get in but worth while, there is an audio handset to hire if required, but we found that the info boards in English were very good. You'll leave having learned so much about this fascinating artist. Enjoy.

The Museum is the prime reason to visit the small town of Albi. Toulouse-Lautrec does not often get major displays, and this museum is ral find of the artist's many talents. It is also small enough not to overwhelm the non-expert visitor. We most highly recommend.
