The Hotel d' Assezat houses the personal collection of Georges Bemberg and is a collaboration of the Foundation and the City of Toulouse. It is quite a large collection and includes paintings, drawings, sculptures, ancient books and furniture. Paintings and drawings are the highlights of the collection, especially 19th and early 20th century French painting.

The building itself is a gem of Toulouse architecture, and one could spend a pleasant hour or two here admiring both the building and the lovely collection.

This museum is in a lovely old house and contains some real gems from Degas, Canaletto, Picasso, Renoir and Lautrec to name but a few! Well worth the 8 Euro admission.

For some the substantial painting collection on the upper floor (works from ca. 1850 to 1950) will be the main draw here. One could be absorbed by them for an hour or two. But for me the more substantial lower floor, jam packed with earlier paintings and decorative objects, was enthralling. Quirky, yes. But one got a very good sense of what being a collector was like in a former time, when such objects were more available. Though quality varied, the best of what is here is first-rate. And there is so much on the walls and in showcases that one could spend half a day going through it all carefully. I should have budgeted twice as much time here as for the Augustins Museum just down the street.

We really enjoyed this little museum/gallery.... but don't follow the guide book! The best part of the collection is on the top floor, so bypass the older stuff (there are some wonderful things to see on the first floor, but the presentation is poor) and go straight to the impressionists and other more modern works... some stunning paintings in a clean, fresh gallery. Strongly recommended.

Nice collection in a beautiful building, spoilt by the terrible colours of the walls which detract and the poor lighting which makes it impossible to see some of the works except from an oblique angle.
