Roland Garros : the world's first multimedia tennis museum
In the grounds of the Roland Garros Stadium can be found the former gardener's cottage that has been converted, with no loss of its original charm, into the Museum of the French Tennis Federation.
This recently revamped state of the art multimedia museum has both permanent and rotating exhibitions vividly chronicling the story of tennis via artifacts, documents, exclusive interviews with the players and archive footage stretching back over a century. All event ticket holders have free access to the museum during the tournament. You will find it open from 10 a.m to 6 p.m. daily.
