The next display in the Museum’s Michael Burton gallery, in Longport farmhouse opened on Friday, 10 May, looking at the Herbarium record of plants and background of the historic gardens here.

This wonderful exhibition wouldn’t have been brought to life without the hard work and dedication of our Head Gardener Carlotta, Museum Curator Julian Bell, their teams and the team of volunteers who have also helped with installing it over the last week.

The opening of this exhibition is timely, to start with the Historic Life Weekend, ‘Ink, Books and Quills’, Medieval Medicine and other Historic Life Weekends throughout May and June.

Please do pop down to have a look. The Historic Life Weekend on ‘Midsummer and Plant lore‘ will mark the end of the exhibition.

Don’t miss out. Free entry to the exhibition is included with Museum admission.
