Fabulous art collection in the heart of Albi, where Lautrec himself used to live. Nice relaxed atmosphere and lots of good information cards to give more background if you're interested. Beware of the closing time in the middle of the day (between 12 and 2pm).

Who doesn't know Toulouse-Lautrec for his vivid posters and his intense works reflecting sometimes the seedier side of life in Paris. His early life was spent around the Albi area and in this museum you can see how his talent was already very apparent at the age of 15 or 16 though the subjects were more likely to be horses...

This is a wonderful location to view Toulouse Lautrecs paintings. Right next to the Cathedral in Albi. Very good collection. €9 euro entry.

Musee Toulouse-Lautrec is a treasure both in its building and gardens, as well as its,exhibition. Allow at least three hours to see the museum and its contents.

This is a gem of a museum, with a magnificent garden with beautiful views on the river Tarn. Toulouse Lautrec is of course well represented but so are a lot of other famous painters.

A chronology of a local artist, well presented with a spread of famous and other works. A good intro to Lautrec's life of work from teen sketcher to the famous Pigalle pieces. The teaser questionnaire (offered in multiple languages) was a nice touch, keeping children focused on the 'treasure hunt'.

We did a day trip from Toulouse to Albi, and visited both the cathedral and museum. Both are highly recommended. There is much to see and do.

The world's largest collection of the artist's work....an amazing exhibit and the best part is that there is a very detailed audio guide available in English. If only other French museums could provide audio guides in other languages than French for their many tourists. Impressive amount of work for an artist who died at 37. Very much worth a visit...

I was looking forward to seeing this museum for years. As many photos & posters that you have seen of Lautrec nothing can be as wonderful as seeing the originals. A warm welcome and a breathtaking show.
