Visit Espace EDF Bazacle, the former mill on the banks of the river Garonne. Built on a natural ford, it was used to grind grain, full cloth, saw wood, and crush oak from the 12th century onward. Today, in the same spot, you'll find a hydroelectric power plant with old and modern turbines. Walk to the 400 sq m (1.312 sq ft) terrace for a view of the river, birds, and migratory fish that swim through the fish ladder. Learn about the workings and fragility of the environment from the observation boards. Put Espace EDF Bazacle at the forefront of your travel plans using our Toulouse road trip planning site.

  • Van Gogh experience Toulouse review ✅ Normal ticket 15€ / VIP ticket 22.50€ ✅ VIP ticket includes: Skip-the-line access + VR experience + 1 poster “Starry Night” However, there was no separate VIP Entrance, and the exhibition logo was printed on the poster. Van Gogh's room, several descriptions of his works (in French), a digital showroom (they say it's a 360-degree exhibition, but several columns are blocking it), a coloring session, a VR session, and that's it. The exhibition lasts less than an hour. The VR experience is highly recommended, and it was perfect in all aspects of movement, color, sound, and description, showing the work by building a village and following it. But ironically, the explanation is in English. ➡️ VIP tickets are overpriced. I recommend buying a regular ticket and purchasing an additional VR experience.
  • The building itself is nice, but it is not worth visiting the Van Gogh experience. If he hadn't killed himself, he would if he saw this bastardization of his artwork.
