Museum of the Museum Grounds

The Chateau as a backdrop!

The beautiful landscaped grounds boast mature trees and seasonal flowers cared for by the local horticultural society and Museum Auxiliary. Pair these natural elements with the picturesque historic chateau in the background, and you have the perfect photo shoot setting for couples tying the knot, or for other special occasions. The grounds are also available for rental for your special event. A special rental option is also available for a 2-hour indoor photography session, a perfect choice for a rainy day backup location.
