This museum is a hidden gem in the center of Toulouse. Although it is small, it gives its visitors a peek at some of the less known qualities of Toulouse. Housed in a lovely building on a nearly hidden side street off of Rue de...More

Museum is down an alley and has a nice courtyard. Five euros and not worth it in my opinion. Some objects of historical interest and some Roman stuff but very limited.

We visited and found that the museum left us flat. The art wasn't that good nor the artifacts. Maybe if you are from the area or if you have a rainy 1/2 hour to fill. There is an English booklet available.

It's a small museum, only five rooms and a terrace, but I was lucky enough to be there when a fabulous guide was on duty. It's staffed entirely by volunteers, and they not only know their stuff, they love explaining it to people - I...More

Welcoming staff, guide books available in English (not sure about other languages), place to leave bags. Lots to see and rarely busy as not often featured in city guides, etc. 2.5 euro entry.
