  • Very nice museum. There is the permanent collection of some very nice Roman and bronze age artifacts. The special exhibit was clever but you must choose based on content.
  • What a wonderful surprise. This museum is a little gem. It is beautifully laid out and everything is really well and very interestingly explained. It was a joy to explore it's exhibits. Congratulations to it's curators. Easy to miss unless you know where to find it but worth hunting - lots, and lots of Roman and early Gallic artefacts and very well curated so that you get a sense of the early history of Toulouse. Worth a visit for sure (and only 5 Euro for an adult)
