“Stunning medieval sculptures”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2014

Normally, these sculptures are high up on cathedrals. This collection is at eye level and what an eye opener that turned out to be. I absolutely loved it. They also have a good collection of Flemish paintings onwards, unfortunately, impressive though they were, I was bowled over by the medieval stuff, especially the gargoyles

“Great Museum, History via Fine Art”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2014

This is another place we hadn't planned on while in Toulouse, but it is also a Toulouse "must-see". The museum itself was a beautiful piece of work. It was compact and easy to navigate. It was well laid out and as you moved through the rooms, you moved through time. Lots of Medieval art and then collections from more recent centuries up to the 20th century.

“A stunning museum in Toulouse centre”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2014

This is a must if you are in Toulouse -fantastic setting in a former convent with exquisite cloisters and also fabulous exhibits . The medeival sculpture collection is absolutely breathtaking and the
collection of paitings on the higher florrs are equally interesting - and all exhibited in the most wonderful setting . Do not miss this if you are in Toulouse.

“Fine art in Toulouse”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2014

Located in a spectacular medieval cloister, this museum is truly a gem of the ville rose. In addition to its extensive collection of medieval art, the museum also contains a wide variety of paintings and sculpture from the 16th, 17th, 18th, 19th and 20th centuries. It is a lovely museum fit to the scale of the city in which it dwells. Make it a stop next time you are in Toulouse.

“Got to go!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2014

The collections are wonderful and the cloister is somewhere you could sit and reflect all day. The Romaine examples of architecture were beautifully displayed and the church and organ take your breath away.
