About the museum: "In 1905, the law separating the property of Church and State allowed the transformation of the Palais de la Berbie, erstwhile residence of archbishops, into a museum. The Toulouse-Lautrec galleries were inaugurated at the Palais de la Berbie in 1922 with the help of an exceptional bequest from the Count and Countess of Toulouse-Lautrec. The Toulouse-Lautrec Museum is today an ambassador for the city of Albi and draws nearly 160,000 visitors annually, which places it among the top museums outside of Paris. Since 2001, it has undertaken an ambitious overhaul program which will put it among the great contemporary museums." (museetoulouselautrec.net)
