Georges Labit Museum

The Georges Labit Museum (French: Musée Georges Labit) (founded in 1893) is an archaeological museum located in Toulouse, France. It is dedicated to artifacts from the Far-Eastern and Ancient Egyptian civilizations.

The museum was founded by Georges Labit (1862–1899), a passionate amateur who travelled the world in search of ancient art and artifacts. It is housed in a Moorish villa erected by Toulousian architect Jules Calbayrac. The complex also contains an exotic garden, a specialist library, and a screening room.
