    Small but quite interesting
    We are please that we got a chance to visit this museum, as it was closed the day before (Monday). It is hard to imagine that a flood made all these important historic items appear fro the first time. I presume the museum only existed to display these items after they were discovered and they are indeed (at least the busts: (1st and second floors) worth admiring.

    Archaeological museum
    The Museum of Saint-Raymond is in the square of Saint-Sernin Basilica. It is hosted in a 1523 building and it hosts Roman artefacts from around Toulouse and the largest collection of Roman busts in France. When I visited (April 2024) there were two permanent exhibitions ("The Roman villa of Chiragan" and "Tolosa in Narbonnaise", both very interesting), as well as a temporary exhibition "Cathars - Toulouse in the crusade".

    Took the teen here for her birthday. Really interesting cathar exhibit and the ticket also includes the Jacoubin museum. There were interactive historical experiences which she really enjoyed. The troubadour guided her to make her own historical song.

Interesting and well presented museum. It was worth a visit for the low price and I spent a good two hours here looking at the mainly Roman artefacts.

We've realized by now, that Tripadvisor is not a great resource for developing our France itineraries. In fact, we would not have visited if we were not in desperate need of a toilette. So if are reading this, GO! It is a very well organized and important chronicle of the Roman development of the city with great artifacts in a building erected atop an exposed ruin of the funerary area. And there's lots of English translation. Our favorite visit in Toulose!

A look at the creation of Toulouse, going back to pre-Roman times and with a lot of Roman artefacts. Only thing missing is moving closer to present day

Nice museum. The exhibitions are extremely well designed and the staff was extremely friendly even the ones that couldn't speak English. The exhibition "
Le mystère Mithra. Plongée au cœur d'un culte remain" was so interesting but such a pity that they did not translate the game that is part of the exhibition into Eng. Only reason why I'm not rating it as excellent. The museum's shop is also nice despite the limited options.

Completely recommend this Museum if you are interested in the Roman origins of Toulouse, moving through to the Visigoths. We also saw the Exhibition on the Cult of Mithras whilst there

The museum is set out in a way that tells the narrative and in the basement is a permanent exhibition of an excavation of a Kiln and sarcophagi.

Reasonably priced, central location, and well set up for adults and children alike. A great way to spend an afternoon.

If you are at all interested in Roman history and sculpture you shouldn't miss this museum just steps from the Basilica St. Sernin. For a very modest fee you can start by studying sculptures collected from a Roman house discovered nearby and descend to the ancient street level, studying burial rites dating back thousands of years. Just incredible. Very educational, interesting and definitely worth a visit.

Okay, if you're interested in Gauls, Romans, Celts, and a building whose basement is an archeological site, Musee Raymond is for you. An archeologist was working at the ticket counter when we arrived, and he provided a lot of information on Gaulish-Roman Toulouse. The museum is laid out intelligently: many reproductions to show kids how life was lived in ancient times; Gaulish, Roman, and Christian artifiacts described at adult level. This museum introduced us to our trip through Perigord, Dordogned, Lot regions.
