The Musée des Augustins is the fine arts museum of Toulouse in Haute-Garonne (France). Opened in 1795, he is part of the former convent of the Augustins of Toulouse. It holds important collections of painting and sculptures.


In 2012, Christelle Molinié, of the musée des Augustins, started uploading part of the collections in low-resolution to illustrate Wikipedia articles about the artworks. Thanks to the support of Wikimédia France, particularly Léna and PierreSelim for on-site training and Jean-Fred for the tools to process metadata and mass-upload, the complete exposed collection of the artworks of the museum are now on Wikimedia Commons.

End 2013, the musée Henri Martin de Cahors follows the example of the Augustins.
