This museum is amazing, could spend an entire day there. The exhibitions are very well laid out over lots of rooms. Definitely worth a visit, and great to see the professionalism of Toulouse Lautrec, a very talented artist, much wider than the well known poster type paintings. The gardens are also very beautiful. A great day out for all.

As I think most people visiting Albi will be going to the excellent Lautrec museum I thought that this warning about the perils of parking in one of the near by municipal car parks was appropriately put here. On Thursday July 30 I and my family were visiting Albi to see the well worth the trip Musee Toulouse-Lautrec All was... More

Albi is a magnificent town-I will remember those red bricks forever,and this museum does a beautiful job introducing various aspects of the life of its favorite son. A mix of painting, media, posters,with a fantastic audio guide-highly recommend this place, as well as the town in general.

Incredible. Really worth a visit. One does not realise just what a gifted and tallented artist Toulouse-Lautrec was. One knows of the poster art but there is so much more. The museum is well laid out and one can spend as long or as short as necessary. After visiting the museum, there are the beautifully laid out gardens of the... More

The town of Albi is quiet and quite beautiful. The church is magnificent and towers over the square. The museum is excellent. A glimpse into the life of Toulouse Lautrec. Old photos and art work; some very familiar pieces and some very different from what you expect from this artist.

This is a beautiful museum dedicated to the works of Toulouse-Lautrec. It is just next to the Cathedral, so it's convenient to see them together. There are many interesting works to see, and the gardens in the back are very beautiful. Great views of the river and the bridge from the upper floors as well. We enjoyed our visit very... More

A day-trip out of Toulouse. We took train from Matabiau Gare to Albi, a short walk into town, a lovely lunch across from the cathedral & museum, the museum & gardens, a walk down to the old bridge, a cold cup of frozen glace before leaving town...a delightful day. The museum is very well done, a good history of T-L...his... More

Very interesting with informative historical information in each room. Don't get caught taking photos! Students from the 70's will recognise Les Ambassadeurs / Aristide Bruant posters

One the first visit 35 years ago, the museum was a dark forbidding place. It took seven years of arduous restoration, but what's offered now is wonderful experience with good supporting information and old photos of Latrec alongside his studies for famous painting handing elsewhere. There's a nice collection of modernists as well.
