A little bit out of town, but only 15-20 minutes cycle if you take the Velo Toulouse. There was lots of interesting information and it makes a change from the usual Toulouse artefacts :)

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... More

Fabulous art beautifully displayed. It's in a great building too. We do have to agree with others about the overly attentive guards. There were more of them than visitors just after opening time on the day we were there.

The museum is south of the main city centre, close to the Canal du Midi and a ten to fifteen minute walk from the war memorial arch. Set in its own garden, this museum holds a wonderful collection of Asian and Egyptian art and artefacts. Although not a large museum, the standard / quality of the exhibitions is excellent; surprisingly... More

Small museum packed with Asian and Eqyptian art and artifacts that should be in a bigger museum somewhere due to their quality. Really enjoyed my visit, although the workers (volunteers?) there were a bit pushy in watching the guests-walking right beside me at times as if I was on some most wanted list rather than just a tourist! Amazing collection... More
