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!

Starting with the cloister, which is quite splendid, this is an important museum for anyone interest in medieval art and architecture. There are lots of Gothic statues, gargoyles, devotional items and, above all, a wonderful group of capitals. These have been arranged by a Cuban-Mexican artist, Jorge Pardo, and carry excellent explanations in French and English. There are several paintings... More

This exhibition is a "pot-pourri" of art work . Some great scupture and paintings and also a great collection of "capitols" that have important interest but did not hold mine throughout. Notwithstanding, you should visit is museum.

The Musée des Augustins capitalizes on its beautiful historic structure and courtyards to creatively display familiar objects in novel ways that invite you to reinterpret what you seeing. The curators of... More
