Well worth an afternoon to see this nice collection of art from the 16th -19th centuries in one of the most historic "hotel particuliers" in Toulouse, the Hotel Azezat. Ticket prices a little high for what you get (8 euros for adults). Rooms connect nicely. The free guide is helpful but more info would be better. Still a must see in Toulouse.

The biggest collection of Bonnards I've ever seen! Astounding variety overall, and the 3-course lunch for 13 euros in the pleasant balcony setting has to be the best deal in central Toulouse.

It seems that Mr Bemberg must have inherited some pretty good art. The first floor includes some high quality portraits by Flemish, German, and Italian painters who worked from 1450 to 1600. Mr Bemberg then added quite a few impressionist and post-impressionist paintings, which now occupy the second floor. Most of these are secondary or tertiary works. The exceptions are an excellent Renoir and about six excellent Bonnards. I wondered whether Mr Bemberg ran into a rather tacky dealer or whether he valued quantity over quality.

We visited here on the reviews from others on tripsadvisor and we loved it. The building is an inner city castle that now holds a very remarkable art collection. The price was 8 euros. We loved seeing the inside of this amazing old home and the artifacts and art were impressive. I am sure the guided tour would have only increased our enjoyment of this lovely castle/now art museum.

I paid an extra 2 Euros to have a guided tour and it was worthy. Beautiful building and the amount of pictures there are is amazing.
