Les Abattoirs Museum
A former slaughterhouse has been given a much more positive lease on life at Les Abattoirs Museum.
Now a contemporary art museum for Toulouse and the Midi-Pyrénées region, this imaginatively restored space also hosts a wide range of cultural expositions.
The museum’s permanent collection includes a wall-sized work by Picasso, and the various exhibition spaces display contemporary artworks that promise to confront, challenge and inspire.
The Les Abattoirs Museum is on the right bank of the River Garonne, near the Pont des Catalans bridge.
The closest metro stop is St Cyprien Republique.
