The staggering cedar tree at the museum entrance is over 200 years old and towers over the courtyard where the Fritz elephant greets visitors and was built on Place Nicolas Frumeaud in 1903. Venture a little further to the “French-style” garden which was redesigned in 1911 around a group of rectangular yew trees with two carpet bedding schemes. A lawn that was once used to play boules covers the centre. The English-style bottom of the garden features climbing roses and a variety of trees such as hackberry, bramble, chestnut, lime and hornbeam trees.
