This beautiful museum is housed in the 13th -century Monastry and cloister of the Augustine monks and is located at the heart of the city. The red-tiled building is an architectural gem itself. When we visited in the first week of November there was an ongoing exhibition of Theodule Ribot, a French artist of the 19th century. The exhibition was interesting, however, the main attraction in my view is the magnificent building itself and its rich history. Due to its central location and convenient access, it should definitely be on the "must-see" list of every visitor to Toulouse. The admission fee is euro 6.- per person.

The red terracotta Toulouse Museum of Art (Musée des Augustine) building was originally built in the 13th century as an Augustinian monastery. In 1793 during the French revolution it was confiscated from the Roman catholic church and turned into a public building. It was opened to the public in 1795 as a Museum that houses everything from Roman and local Occitan sculptures to paintings from the Middle Ages and the early 20th century.
The fountain in its small cloister was copied in 2006 and installed in the Place Saintes-Scarbes, after the fountain there was destroyed by local residents in 2002.
Unfortunately we were unable to visit the Art Museum, as it was closed for restoration.

TIP: The Art Museum is closed on Tuesdays, but do go early to avoid the crowds on the rest of the week.

We had travelled from Carcassonne to Toulouse by train on a cold rainy day and the train was one hour and thirty minutes late!

We were therefore deeply disappointed to find the museum closed for refurbishment especially as the buildings looked fascinating from the outside and their was a taster of their sculpture collection through the glass windows near the entrance.

Planned to see it, but as usual, the web site says nothing about it being closed indefinitely for repairs. Walked all the way there only to be disappointed.

We sadly didnt have the chance to go inside as it was closed when we were there. That being said, the architectural design was beautiful. We really enjoyed walking by it every day.

This is the huge museum in the center of the city.
With very few other visitors, I enjoyed myself watching things inside slowly.

This is a beautiful place to go to and former monastery, they had maps in different languages available. The place was very spacious with beautiful sculpture and gothic architecture. There was a small garden too with chairs to enjoy the sun. The first floor (1 of 2) was closed which they didn't tell us as we went in so that was a sour end to the visit.

This thirteenth-century convent has been transformed into an impressive museum, housing paintings from the Renaissance to Impressionism (in galleries currently closed) – and, perhaps most importantly, a wonderful collection of Romanesque sculptures, rescued from other nearby religious foundations. With its beautiful and serene cloisters, it is surely one of the most important cultural sites in Toulouse, and very much worth a visit.

This is an old convent converted into a museum. They have recorded guided tour in various languages if you ask (they did not offer it to me). Inside are beautiful pieces of romanesque and gothic art. I really enjoyed the romanesque room with many statues, in particular one of Mary with baby Jesus that seems so realistic for the time it was made. Really amazing. The cloister is really lovely with small vegetable plots and chairs to sunbathe.
