Consecrated in 1514, this church was converted into a museum when a bunch of art lovers got together and decided that the best of French and particularly Toulousan painting had to be saved from the pillaging by revolutionary mobs. The museum opened it’s doors in 1785, making it one of the oldest museum in the country! Many renovations were made to optimise the building’s presentation in the 19th and 20th centuries. It houses fine arts and paintings from the middle ages to the present times. There’s even some art from the primitive eras! The paintings are mostly French, and there is an impressive collection of Romanesque, Gothic and Renaissance sculpture. Some of the paintings held here are quite renowned, like the Sultan of Morocco, Corpus Christi Day, and The Stop Forced.

  • Greeted by friendly staff, free cloakroom, and the place is near empty. There is an incredible array of sculpture here. I've been most interested in the column capitals which I've never been able to see up close before. The small cloister was a beautiful place to stop for a snack.

  • Beautiful building with inside garden. Old monastery turned museum. A lot of unique sculptures and impressive paintings. Great way to spend an afternoon.

  • Must-see in Toulouse, in-depth journey through medieval sculptures, 17th - 19th century paintings, gothic church architecture and even modern design

  • The Augustine's Museum is a “must see” in Toulouse. It is very interesting and it won't disappoint you.

  • This shouldn't be missed whilst visiting Toulouse. Well presented pieces, clean, quiet and friendly staff. Some really interesting collections, most info is written in french but for 2 euros you can get an audio device for English. Pictured us 'The Musée des Augustins' collection of Romanesque sculpture is composed mainly of remnants from the three most significant religious buildings in Toulouse: the Monastery of La Daurade, the Collegiate Church of Saint Sernin and SaintEtienne Cathedral.' aka a cool room.
