musee des augustins musee des augustins

The Musée des Augustins, founded in 1793, is one of the oldest museums in France along with the Louvre. Housed in a superb convent from the 14th and 15th centuries with an intact cloister and completed with a new wing in the 19th century, this is the Museum of Fine Arts of the city of Toulouse.
The museum has in its collections more than 4,000 works from the Middle Ages to the beginning of the 20th century, also divided between sculptures and paintings. The collections of medieval sculpture are among the richest in Europe. In the spectacular Salon Rouge, French painting from the 19th century (Delacroix, Ingres, Benjamin-Constant) and the beginning of the 20th century (Manet, Vuillard, Toulouse-Lautrec) rubs shoulders with remarkable sculptures (Rodin, Claudel, Marqueste, Falguière).
Located in the heart of the city, the museum is a place of exchanges and meetings in tune with current events and the world around it. Its cultural program is designed in this spirit: regular or one-off meetings, in connection with major cultural events and temporary exhibitions.
