The Musée Toulouse-Lautrec is an art museum in Albi, southern France, dedicated mainly to the work of the painter Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec who was born near Albi.[1]

The museum opened in 1922 and is located in the historic center of Albi, in the Palais de la Berbie, formerly the Bishops' Palace, an imposing fortress completed at the end of the 13th century.[citation needed]

The museum houses over a thousand works by Toulouse-Lautrec, the largest collection in the world.[citation needed] It is based on a donation by Toulouse-Lautrec's mother after his death in 1901.
