Musée Toulouse-Lautrec, salle des dessins(c) François Pons, Musée Toulouse-Lautrec, Albi, Tarn
In 2012 the Toulouse-Lautrec Museum marked the end of a 10 years period of restoration. Set within the medieval Berbie Palace, it is one of the largest international contemporary museums. This ancient arbishop palace houses a unique collection of Toulouse Lautrec’s works.

The most remarkable public collection in the world

More than 1,000 works, including his famous posters, are housed in this impressive ‘palace’ museum. A visit to the Toulouse-Lautrec Museum allows you to discover the evolution of this ‘atypical’ artist with a chronological exhibition of his works. Paintings from his youth, portraits of friends and family, the famous paintings of brothels and prostitutes – alongside his advertisements for bicycles, restaurants, and cabarets - as well as his lithographs, make this collection exceptional.

The collection has recently been enlarged with the purchase of new works.


One of the largest museums of contemporary art

After a ten year period of restoration and re-design, The Toulouse-Lautrec museum is now an exceptional contemporary museum with a clear and elegant museography.  In addition to the permanent galleries devoted to Toulouse-Lautrec, it also offers:

  • a 156 seat auditorium
  • a collection of modern art
  • a gallery dedicated to archaeological discoveries
  • a gallery for temporary exhibitions
  • a large archive resource 
  • and a gallery dedicated to the episcopal city



The Berbie Palace, a remarkable medieval building

The former episcopal bishops’ palace, built during the 13th century, now houses the work of the Albi-born painter, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. Recent restoration work has revealed hidden treasures – a well-preserved 13th C glazed terracotta tile floor, a medieval fireplace, walled-up doorways.  A visit to the Museum gives you the opportunity to explore and discover this unique medieval building.
