Garden Museum

After a three-month refurbishment, the Garden Museum (formerly the Museum of Garden History) re-opened in November 2008 with purpose-built exhibition and education spaces designed by Dow Jones Architects. The Garden Museum's permanent display includes a collection of antique tools exploring garden history. Outside, in the re-creation of a seventeenth-century knot garden planted in honour of John Tradescant, intrepid plant hunter and gardener to Charles I, are the tombs of the Tradescants and Admiral Bligh of the Bounty. Topiaries, old roses, herbaceous perennials and bulbs give year-round interest, and most plants are labelled with their country of origin and year of introduction to the UK.
