Garden Museum

The Garden Museum was set up in 1977 in order to rescue from demolition the abandoned ancient church of St Mary’s which is the burial place of John Tradescant (c1570 – 1638), the first great gardener and plant-hunter in British history. 

In 2015-17 the Museum was transformed into a centre for exhibitions and events by the construction of contemporary gallery, exhibition and learning spaces. The temporary exhibitions explore the making of British gardens, and a programme of talks and interviews celebrate heroes and heroines from the forgotten plant-hunters and gardeners of the past to the designers and writers in fashion today.
