The building itself is incredible, and the artwork, while perhaps not the best in Europe, tells a great story. If you are in Toulouse, make this a destination. The artwork ranges in era, from religious to landscape to later, and the statues also are a wide range. Well-signed and interpreted, with levels from walking and reading, holding a guide in... More

Beautiful building, former church of the Augustins Order, which is hosting several art collections inside. We visited the paintings section (quite a rich collection with impressive paintings, I especially liked the ones of Philippe de Champaigne, Delacroix, Toulouse-Lautrec), medieval sculpture and a recent section roman sculptures. Highly recommended for a 1hr/2hrs visit when in Toulouse.

the building itself, with the cloister &the staircase, is beautiful; the exhibits (roman capitals from local churches and cloisters that have been destroyed) are amazing, the first floor however, which hosts 19th paintings looks very dated

Art, sculpture and history all in one, very interesting and informative. The architecture is fascinating but there is a lot of walking and steps to climb. Lovely cloisters and quiet spots in the gardens to just sit and take it all in. There was some building and restoration work going on, but this did not disrupt the visit. Need to... More

Excellent collection of religious sculptures and French and Italian paintings from the 15-17th centuries. Not many people if you visit during weekdays early in the morning. Very pleasant visit.

It was a rainy and a cold day when we visit Toulouse and we wondered what to do. We went to the Musee des Agustins and it was such an interesting place to visit including having a garden in the middle of this previous church compound. Their collection of paintings, sculptures, and other artworks were impressive and educational for us... More

It's one of the biggest museums in Toulouse! Paintings and Sculpturs, not Modern Art! Not famous for its paintings of renowed painters, but it has a nice selection! They have a temporal expo by Jorge Pardo that is just breathtaking!

It is monastery turned into museum - so you can se beautiful example of gothic architecture, nicely preserved. Inside fantastic exhibitions. Gothic sculpture galleries are absolutely outstanding! That's my favorite part of the museum, but there is so much more to see. Very rich afternoon!
