Musée Saint-Raymond (in English, Saint-Raymond museum) is the archeological museum of Toulouse, opened in 1892. The site originally was a necropolis, and in later constructions was a hospital for the poor and pilgrims, prison, student residence, stables, barracks and presbytery, eventually becoming a museum in 1891. It is housed in the former Saint-Raymond university college dating from the sixteenth century that borders Basilica of Saint-Sernin.

Staff very friendly even with my rusty French. The way they display the collection is very informative and interesting.
There are activities for kids and old sculptures. It's nice but if you don't go... Nothing really matters!
Great place to discover ancient Toulouse. Their way of display is just amazing. There is a small cafe in the garden where you can enjoy the sun while having a cafe.
Excellent models of ancient city planning and growth. Bricks are thinner here! Fabulous Greek and Roman artifacts. Clay marble glass pottery from 1st to 16th century. Basement holds archeological dig through several centuries. Visited in am then back in the afternoon. Go.
Nice museum on the history of Toulouse. Activities for kids.
The surprise was the huge number of marble busts on display, recovered from a Roman villa about 30 miles from Toulouse. We only popped in for an hour because it was raining and stayed twice as long. There's a shop and cafe on the site which is well worth a visit.
