Nothing can prepare to this step on to another continent ! Considerng the size of the city, the collection is unique ! Open all the drawers on the base floor, these Japanese drawings are unique and though most seem familiar, others might sketch out a singular face of Japan !
An interesting array of artefacts in a small and unassuming building outside of the centre of Toulouse. The Asian part of the ground floor was the best exhibit with some interesting pieces however my reason for the lower mark is because there were no descriptions in English meaning we couldn't fully appreciate the history and purpose of the objects we... 更多
Small but packed full of interesting artifacts from the Far East and Egypt (good mummy and video with English subtitles). All the descriptions are in French with no English translation- this is a problem with most museums in Toulouse. Good for an hour or so's visit- 4 euros to visit.
This museum is rather fascinating, though I'd recommend you read an account of George Labit's life before you go. I'll say no more, but it'll make the visit that much more worthwhile.

A marvellous little oriental palace in the middle of a garden, showcasing the modest but very beautiful private collection of its owner. A must see only if you have time when visiting Toulouse. Though not a priority.
Unlike a lot of larger museums, this one has a select number of artefacts but the quality shines through. With exhibits from Egypt, India, Cambodia, Thailand, Japan, China and Mongolia, the collector obviously had taste and plenty of spare cash. Now well displayed within a lovely Moorish inspired building, we enjoyed free entry on the first Sunday of the month... 更多
