Even if you are not a fan of Toulouse-Lautrec it is worth a visit. Fascinating story with lots of his paintings, drawings and posters.
The museum is deceptively large and encompasses every stage of Toulouse-Lautrec's work. A unique aspect of this museum is its location in the old palace. Must see views out the windows and pretty gardens below.
We thought the €9 entrance fee was a bit steep for a French provincial museum but after 2 hours and a great selection of art, we realised it was great value for money. The art is housed in an interesting building which is equally as interesting to walk round as the art. Well laid out and easy to follow, the... 更多
At 9 euros per adult and the vast collection of mainly painting it is well worth while. Around two floors to walk around, sometimes feeling it is a maze. Great works of art and history.
Brilliant setting in the Archbishops' Palace. Personally, Toulouse-Lautrec is not my favourite artist, but the layout and descriptions were excellent, the architecture of the Archbishops' Palace fascinating, and the views over the gardens and Albi outstanding.
We found the gallery very I teresti g but would not have paid the €9 if it had not been European Heritage day and the museum was free. Found the paintings by Toulouse-Lautrac pretty ordinary but did enjoy and recognise the posters that were displayed. One of the highlights was being able to see through the Berbie Palace which houses... 更多
We were very pleasantly surprised by the scope and quality of the exhibit. It include some early work by Lautrec and some work-in progress, as well as some of his collections. The museum does not appear to have many visitors. We thought it was closed for the day (it was later in the afternoon) when we entered the outer gate... 更多
Apparently I wasn't very familiar with the work of Toulouse Lautrec because this excellent museum took me by surprise. While well-known for his posters and lithographs, I had no idea about his more classical work and I was duly impressed. Buy a combination ticket at a discount at the tourist office and head one door away to be amazed. I... 更多
Toulouse Lautrec museum contains the pieces that he deemed worth saving. He personally destroyed what he considered not worthy of being seen by the public. Hence, the display isn't all that large but is very interesting to see. His devotion to his mother is obvious in his work as well as how much he loved horses. No photography is permitted.
An excellent presentation of a large collection of the artist's work (and that of a few others) with laminated explanatory cards in French, German and English in each room. The museum is housed in the former bishop's palace adjacent to the Cathedral; this and its lovely garden provide a fine setting for the art. The collection is based on donations... 更多
