In particular, the museum hopes to show that the concept of "madness" or "psychiatric disorder" was never an exclusively medical significance. It always involves an element of social and ideological construction. It is precisely these aspects that may determine how pervasive our attitude to mental illness. The manner of psychiatry - as part of Western medicine, in ensemble playing with the rest of society - to approach the man, is very crucial for the views it becomes dead and it faces as for the mode in which the knowledge produced is translated into social initiatives. The knowledge provided is also an invitation to you, our visitor, to deepen and enrich your general image of man.

In 2004, it was recognized as a "Remarkable Garden," an award recently created by the Ministry of Culture and Communication. This label recognizes the garden's quality and charm, whose richness stems as much from its 17th and 18th century origins as from the modifications made by Ernest Hébert and his wife Gabrielle. The juxtaposition of well groomed, Italian style areas with English garden-type landscapes, the antique elements, and the numerous water basins are reminiscent of the Villa Medicis in Rome and make for an original setting, open freely to the public.
