According to Wikipedia, “The museum has the “Musée de France” label. In 2011, the building was labeled “Maisons des Illustres” by the Ministry of Culture and Communication. In the courtyard there is a statue named Statue des grands soutiens du monde (the great support of the world). Two doors from the 17th century were registered as a monument historique on 18 June 1926. In 2012, the museum numbered over 16,000 visitors.
