The Toulouse Museum of Fine Arts, traditionally known as the "Augustinian Museum" ("Musée des Augustines"), is based within the city's former Augustinian convent.

Since the Revolution, it has housed collections of paintings and sculptures ranging from the early Middle Ages to the 1940s, including an exceptional collection of Romanesque sculptures that mostly come from the Daurade Monastery, the Collegiate Church of St. Sernin and the Cathedral of St. Stephen.

This convent, together with the church, the chapter rooms, the cloister and its garden, which are worth a visit in themselves, is a remarkable testimony to the Languedoc Gothic style.

The 4,000 pieces in its collections are arranged chronologically and particular care has been taken over their display. Thus, the Gothic sculptures in the Gothic rooms overlooking the cloister, religious paintings (Perugino, Rubens, etc.) in the church, and paintings from the 19th century (Corot, Courbet, Ingres, Delacroix) in the Red Room are among the many works of art that you can admire during your visit.

Themed tours and organ concerts are regularly held by the museum.
