Musee Des Augustins - Review
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.

Musee Des Augustins, Toulouse Reviews
Ce musée vaut vraiment la peine d'être visiter il regorge de trésors architecturaux. Le musée abrite une partie dédiée à l'épigraphie de cette période et l'histoire médiévale de la zone et de la région Occitanie. Il est agréable lorsqu'il fait beau de se prélasser dans son jardin sur les transats mis a disposition des visiteurs. Bonne découverte. Le musée est ouvert jusqu'à 18h et gratuit le 1er dimanche du mois
A bit disappointing. Not much to see. Clearly the building is interesting but the main art gallery is closed until 2019. One or two interesting pictures in the chapel.
A great museum inside Augustines church/monastery. Full of beautiful sculptures. There is also a room with paintings but at the time of my visit was closed due to maintenance of the skylights
Interesting place with a wide array of paintings and sculptures. The old monastery is in a very good condition and is a nice place to run away from hustle and bustle of the city. Students enter for free. :) Unfortunately the part with paintings was closed. :(
It’s a beautiful museum located in a former convent. You might be interested if you like statues, sculptures, and paintings and you’d pay 6€ (except if you’re under 18 or it’s the first Sunday of the month). However, the paintings section (which was the second floor) was closed due to renovation with no reduction in ticket prices. It left us with one floor to explore and very little to understand when one does not speak French.
