Les AbattoirsModern and contemporary art

Formerly an abattoir, these vast buildings are now home to exhibitions and events that showcase artists focusing on modern and contemporary art.

The temple of contemporary creativity

The former abattoir of the city is now a museum and the region’s contemporary art fund.
Its unique collection of more than 4,000 works covers artistic movements born after the Second World War right up to the very latest contemporary creations.

The immense nave, more than 1,600m² of exhibition space on the 3rd floor, provides a venue for the expression of art from the period following the Second World War right up to modern day artists.

All year round the museum organises exhibitions that allow visitors to explore the artistic movements of our day, tackling the aesthetic challenges facing contemporary creation at the turn of the XX and XXI Centuries.

Les Abattoirs is a living cultural site in Toulouse and is more than just a museum, hosting a programme of concerts, performances, screenings...
