Contemporary art hub in Toulouse.

Toulouse has carved itself a niche as a cultural hub in the south of France and this is in large part thanks to Les Abattoirs. This museum, located in a converted former slaughterhouse on the banks of the Garonne, is home to the Regional Contemporary Art Collection (FRAC Midi-Pyrenees).

Discover the treasures of the museum's permanent collection. The modern art collection includes art brut, and works by great artists such as Picasso, Arman and César. Fans of contemporary art will not be disappointed either, as the institution's cutting edge collection continues to grow, the Abattoirs playing a key role in encouraging contemporary creation locally. The collection is categorised by themes such as "The organic and alive", "Poetic city," "Cosmic dimensions", "Hybrids and chimeras", "political and engaged art" and" Planet brain".

Les Abattoirs regularly organises temporary exhibitions on varied themes, workshops for children and many other events, making art accessible to all.
