Description

In the basement of a fourth-century necropolis containing richly sculpted tombs and sarcophagi, this is an exceptional testament to Toulouse's history. In the 11th century some of the walls formed part of the Saint Raymond hospital named after the canon of Saint Sernin, Raymond Gairast, its administrator. In the twelfth century, the building became a university college. Beautifully arranged, this museum's first floor displays the results of the excavation of the mysterious Chiragan villa, found 60km south-west of Toulouse: bas-reliefs, Roman sculptures in marble including a collection of startlingly realistic busts of emperors. On the second floor is an exhibition of everyday objects and jewelry from Roman Toulouse, Tolosa. The museum also organizes temporary exhibitions and lectures.
