There are many reasons to expose yourself to art. The Musee des Augustins is an expansive setting for the open-minded to consider Western civilization's depictions and perceptions through the ages. There is sculpture here from modern and medieval eras, French, Spanish, Dutch, and Italian paintings from the 15th to the 20th centuries representing myriad visions of life, religious commemorations, portraiture,...

I would definitely recommend to go when in Toulouse, also given that there isn't a huge amount of things to visit in the city. I enjoyed visiting it - there was not too much and I mostly focused on the highlights. A couple of hours well spent and besides the building itself it's very nice

Many different periods and themes to choose from and spent sufficient time on a section rather than trying to get around the entire space. It is huge. Easily accessed with many cafes and shops nearby the gallery museum is restful with the surge of Toulouse going on all around. The outdoor gardens were cool and shady in the heat of... More

Super museum, with a lot of history, its not expensive to go in (5 euros) and you can enjoy the garden and all. Good location near to transports (metro Esquirol), take at least 3 hours to be inside.

We fell upon this and we're rewarded with a free visit today. Some very ancient religious sculptures good to view. Quiet little courtyard where you can have a drink and a little break from the heat of the day. Recommend.

This a fantastic museum with plenty of paintings and sculptures to see. We had our 9 year old with us and he also enjoyed it. We spent about an hour here and it was only 10 Euro for 3 of us so great value.

we enjoyed the impressive church, delicate sculpture and this recent exhibition of the 'sculpture romanes' . The way they have been set is fantastic : between ancient and modern, we took many pictures. well worth the £5!

It's a sudden plan and visiting here. So that city center is quite little busy and we went here also on Sunday so there is free access area only available to see inside. So we went and see those pictures and paintings. It's quit interesting. If you visit that some other days maybe you will feel some extra.

Not the most interesting collection for a big museum like this. There is one hall that's just columns. Hundreds of them...

Really enjoyed out potter around this well laid out museum. There is a lovely courtyard where you can rest and let everything sink in, great deckchairs! The layout of sone if the exhibits is unique and there are a significant number of English details given, something lacking in many French museums. The chapel is being repaired but still worth a...
