The Musée Toulouse-Lautrec is a museum in Albi in southern France, dedicated mainly to the work of the painter Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec who was born near Albi. It opened in 1922 and is located in the historic center of Albi, in the Palais de la Berbie, formerly the Bishops' Palace, an imposing fortress completed at the end of the 13th century.

The museum houses over 1,000 works by Toulouse-Lautrec, the largest collection in the world. It is based on a donation by Toulouse-Lautrec's mother after his death in 1901.
