Create an itinerary including Les Abattoirs
At Les Abattoirs, enjoy learning about art and artists since the 1950s. The museum illustrates the artistic movements born after World War II in Europe, Japan, and the United States. Art schools represented include Lyrical Abstraction, Abstract Expressionism, Art Brut, Informal Art, Japanese Gutai, Arte Povera, Spatialism, and Trans Avant Garde. The most emblematic work on display is "La dépouille de Minotaure en costume d’Arlequin,” conceived by Luis Fernandez and Pablo Picasso in 1936. If you want to see this particular piece, call ahead; it’s only shown six months of the year, due to its fragility. Start your trip to Toulouse by creating a personalized itinerary on Inspirock.

  • Great place to spend some time the outside has some great art and the mirrored spaceship is cute. The exhibition inside was good too.
  • Unfriendly staff and had to leave my bag in a locker which as a traveller felt very unnatural, I was out after about ten minutes. The park and water front outside were much more enjoyable.
