The museum is situated in a very beautiful renaissance building. The rooms are thematic and tasteful painted and arranged. This is not a big collection but it contains several master pieces. There is a pleasant semicovered café in the court yard protected from noise, winds and hot sun.

Visited this museum on a cold winter's day and had the place to myself. Very charming with many different rooms, themes, and pieces. Definitely worth a visit.

The Georges Bemberg collection is housed in a beautifully restored Sixteenth century grand town house attributed to the Toulouse architect, Nicolas Bachelier, and belongs to the city of Toulouse. Bemberg himself, who died in 2011, was a wealthy Argentine, whose eclectic and highly sophisticated taste - and ability to purchase! - has provided the city with an outstanding collection of...

This is a new museum- The collection of one man who actually came from Argentina and lived in NewYork and Paris and died only three years ago. The collection is housed in an AMAZING building that acts as the perfect foil for a varied, but quality selection of artworks- including sculpture, ceramics and bibelots- representing his collecting interests. Make a... More

This varied and interesting collection is beautifully presented and well worth a couple of hours of your time - and the time it takes to find it!

We loved the idiosyncrasies of this collection of art, sculpture and furniture - every room contained things that intrigued and delighted. We especially enjoyed the Venetian room, with its Canalettos and Guardis. You can easily spend several hours browsing the collection.

So I have been to all the museum in Toulouse and this is definitely my favorite one. The museum is located in the city-center, in a wonderful mansion. Not only do you get to see different sculptures, furniture (...) but you also walk around the property and discover a fantastic piece of architecture.. Double the experience, double the pleasure!

worth a visit, this medieval hôtel is already a beautiful piece of architecture...then the Deutsch masters paintings, the venician Canaletto paintings are wonderful. The atmosphere is quite and you may approach the paintings as closely as you like. Ancient furnitures are preserved in some rooms. While in Toulouse, do not miss this remarquable museum.

Like some reviewers, I wasn't enthralled with the rather mish-mash early collections on the lower floors, but the more modern collection in the newer, brighter upper floors certainly worth a view - Monet, Caillebotte, Dufy, Utrillo, Derain, Bonnard, Morisot, Degas etc etc which wouldn't look out of place in Paris at the Musée D'Orsay or L'Orangerie if truth be told....
