Visited it with my wife and three kids for the whole morning. We all lobed it including the kids. The display is beautiful especially the sculptures and the display on top of the columns on the second floor. The cloister is a peacefuk place where someone could spend a whole day. Completely loved it

Worth the time, not expensive to visit and the 2 euro guide makes all the difference. It has a mix of art, sculpture a large, airy cloister and gardens plus a long row of gargoyles!. Something for everyone.

We started our Bastille Day here at the Musee des Augustins. It has a marvelous collection of architectural sculpture, artistic sculpture and paintings. I particularly enjoyed the Toulous-Lautrec pieces in the painting gallery. The presentation of column capitals in the gallery designed by Pardo is excellent!

This is a wonderful collection of exhibits and is beautifully organized. It was true key fascinating especially the lower level which was largely devoted to materials form the Middle Ages. The upper level has a very large collection of paintings- some from world famous artists and others from more regionally known painters. Ther's also a stairwell with sculptures that are... More

Best among the places I visited in Toulouse. The room decorated by Jorge Pardo will stay in memory. A large collection of sculptures and paintings mostly from the region.

The building is amazing and the exhibitions are fascinating. The garden in the middle of the building is just gorgeous. I was there on the first Sunday of the month and it was free, apparently this is always the case. There are also activities for children if you come with small kids. A very nice activity to do alone or... More

This was a really well balanced museum with something for everyone. It is not too big and not too small, perfect to see everything without running through the teens' attention span. Highly recommend.

The museum has plenty of sculptures, lovely cloisters etc to see for 5 euros. The ticket allows you to pop put for lunch and return later to complete your visit. Lots to see and a good way to spend a few hours, especially if wet!
