The gardens history, Painting or Sculpture exhibitions, craft workshops...

Our vaulted cellars houses a permanent exhibition, as well as temporary exhibitions.


Permanent Exhibition

The exhibition presents, in pictures, the history of La Roche Courbon gardens from the 18th century to nowadays.
Located in the former guards' kitchen, this set of twenty panels explains to visitors the site's evolution and how the formal gardens have been imagined, designed and planted. The emphasis is focused on how the gardens have been saved from the marshlands with their setting on stilts .

Temporary exhibitions

From Handicraft week to the Heritage days, our large vaulted room (quite cool during summer), offers us the opportunity to present various workshops, and all kind of exhibitions.

Let's visit the events pages to have a look at our upcoming events'program !

Manual Engineering Week

Every third week of August, we invite an artist who presents his work with the setting up of a workshop, and thus share his passion with our visitors.
