Museum Historic Gardens Exhibition: The Power of Plants

This exhibition will look at the history and creation of the Museum’s Historic Gardens, how they have developed over time and the work our gardens team do in maintaining and interpreting them.

Looking at the use of plants from culinary & medicinal herbs, to their uses in textiles & dyes, and how they support biodiversity & sustainability of our natural environment.

We will also have our Museum collection copy of Gerard’s 17th century herbal book on display, which includes woodcut and herbarium samples.

Most demonstrations and activities will run from 10.30am to 4pm. Please note that these can be subject to change and up to date information will be available on the day from our admissions team
