Museum | The Museum Garden

The former layout of the garden remains an enigma

Cassel’s 1640 town plan shows that the garden of the Hôtel de la Noble Cour had a layout that was practically identical to the current one: an upper part with no particular landscaping, and a lower part planted with trees. A 1926 plan showing the building at the end of the 18th century evokes a garden in the French style.

The Museum Garden is organised into terraces that are structured using a variety of typically Flemish materials, such as brick and bluestone. The flowerbeds develop and metamorphose in line with exhibitions.
