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...

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...

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.
