Musée des Arts Précieux Paul-Dupuy

Museums and monuments


It is time for the grand reopening! After three years of renovation, the time has come to open the doors of the refurbished precious arts museum of Paul-Dupuy and to discover its new curious and precious museography.

Located in the historical area of the Carmes, Paul-Dupuy is the decorative and graphical arts museum of the city of Toulouse.

When the museum was founded in the beginning of the 20th century, it was established in an old mansion of a parliamentarian from Toulouse. Back then, it was a private institution that was home to a rich collection belonging to an amateur of art named Paul Dupuy (1867-1944). These collections included some art objects, paintings, sculptures, furniture, ethnographic objects, sketches, prints etc. Bequeathed to the city, it opened to the public in the 14th of July 1949.

After 3 years of renovation, the museum reopened to the public in the 16th of November 2022 with a renewed museography and some enriched collection. You can now discover the pre-cinema and cinema collection in the screening study, one of the most beautiful collection of horology in the time study, and finally, the decorative arts collection in the precious study.

Horaires

Open from Tuesday to Sunday from 10am to 6pm. Closed on Mondays and on January 1st, May 1st and December 25th.
