This is no ordinary museum. Imagine if you could wander through every field, wood, tropical rainforest and flower glade in the world. Think what it would be like if you could see the most beautiful, exotic and weird plants all at once. Have you ever wondered what you would see if you could stroll back in time, to the beginnings of life on Earth? You can, in the pages of Botanicum.
Tour the galleries and learn how plants have been around many millions of years longer than us. Find out about plants that have changed over time, and about others that have stayed the same. Stroll through our exhibitions and discover the many different life forms of plants.
Look carefully – some of what you see here you can also find in your garden or local park. Many of the plants in our galleries are also in the kitchen cupboard – did you know you eat plants from the grass family, probably every day?
You will learn some fascinating science, such as why some plants are green and others are not. How some plants live in water, and others are suspended in mid-air, not connected to the ground at all. And how some plants feed on flesh. Plants give us some of our biggest, smallest, oldest and smelliest forms of life on Earth.
Enter Botanicum and discover the strange and wonderful kingdom of plants, in all its colourful, surprising majesty.
