Musée Labenche

Interesting
Built around 1540 by Jean II de Calvimont, the lord of Labenche who was the king's clerk and keeper of the seals, this pink-stone townhouse is a superb example of the Toulouse Renaissance style. The museum's permanent exhibition attracts numerous visitors, thanks to its varied collections relating to geology, palaeontology, history, art and archaeology, as well as its furniture, tapestries and folk exhibits.
