The Compagnonnage Museum

Located in the old carpenter's cayenne, near the Place du Capitole, the Toulouse Compagnonnage museum exhibits the masterpieces of the 7 Compagnonnage societies of the Federation, from all eras and trades.

The Compagnons consider it a place of culture and a model of tradition with a privileged place in the world of tomorrow's technologies.

Fairy house frames, model staircases, and even a wrought iron dress: you can find unusual masterpieces in this museum, where you are welcomed by little rabbits!

The exterior of the place is worth a visit, with its superb balcony and its little rabbits sculpted in the walls, symbols of the apprentices, who listen well to their masters thanks to their big ears.

This former house of the Compagnons Charpentiers now exhibits works made by the young Compagnons during their Tour de France. The works presented are in wood and stone, also steel, but you can also admire the work of the bakers.

To learn more, ask questions to the people who run the museum, former Compagnons who speak with passion about their trade and the pieces on display.

Regularly, a temporary exhibition of several months allows the public to discover masterpieces around a theme or a trade.


Opening : Every Wednesday from 2pm to 5pm. Guided tours by reservation on other days of the week for groups of more than 10 visitors. Closed in August.

Free admission.
