Starting with the cloister, which is quite splendid, this is an important museum for anyone interest in medieval art and architecture. There are lots of Gothic statues, gargoyles, devotional items and, above all, a wonderful group of capitals. These have been arranged by a Cuban-Mexican artist, Jorge Pardo, and carry excellent explanations in French and English. There are several paintings... More

This exhibition is a "pot-pourri" of art work . Some great scupture and paintings and also a great collection of "capitols" that have important interest but did not hold mine throughout. Notwithstanding, you should visit is museum.

Museums by their very nature display artifacts of interest. But it is rare to have the display of the artifacts to be as interesting as the items on display. The Musée des Augustins capitalizes on its beautiful historic structure and courtyards to creatively display familiar objects in novel ways that invite you to reinterpret what you seeing. The curators of... More

I really liked the layout of this museum and found the English audio guide very helpful. If you get tired walking around the museum you can stroll into the nice garden in the center of the complex and relax on the benches there.

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.
