Lovely location inside an old monastery with some beautiful cloisters and preserved gargoyles. The variety of art and sculpture is wonderful. If you are under 25 it is free entrance. Highly recommended.

Inside you will find a courtyard beautifully lit and adorned with an array of columns and sculptures. The light was amazing.

This museum was really a great surprise. Unfortunatelly we only had 1 hour for the visit and could not enjoy the masterpieces as long as we would have liked. Next time I will be in Toulouse, I hope to find the time to finish the visit.
