Espace d'Art moderne et contemporain: Les Abattoirs
Toulouse's abattoir, which closed in 1988, is now a museum. Paintings, sculptures, and photographs by more than 700 artists from all over the world are on permanent exhibition. Always original, sometimes shocking, the works captivate the public; particularly enchanting is Picasso's La Depouille du Minotaure en costume d'Harlequin (1936). In addition to a media library and bookshop, the centre also has lectures, guided tours,multi-media workshops and a plastic arts room for children.
For my money it is one of the best small market modern art museums in the world. The permanent collection is interesting, and is well augmented with traveling exhibits. The space is wondrously designed and well suited to families. When you're done have a coffe at the museums cafe out back.
