Academy of Miniatures Museum

Our trip starts in the heart of the Tarn, in the Albigensian region , in the Madeleine d ' Albi district . And we start very young… At the Académie des Miniatures Museum , the universe of the place revolves around the childhood memories of its creator. A fun and surprising perspective on scenes of everyday life in the mansions of the 19th century. Workshops and stories for children are regularly scheduled.

Walk in the squares and gardens of the city of Albi


Stretch your legs, what do you think? Parc Rochegude, Castelnau, de la Renaudié, square Van Gogh, national garden or that of Merville… All the parks and gardens to be surveyed in Albi are listed on the town's website .

And to finish with a flourish, the “ L'Échappée Verte ”, near the episcopal city and in the heart of the city, allows a breath of fresh air in the heart of nature . On the banks of the Tarn, you follow the GR36 for 4 km. All practical information on the Albi-tourisme website .
