  • Beautiful historic building, interesting and informative exhibits and samples on display and local art. Found this was open by chance, great to visit.
  • Well what a find this place was! Purely accidental but what a delight. It was like stepping back in time. Amazing collection of botanical items sourced from all around the world for their usefulness to mankind. The displays were fascinating and the presentation unlike anything else in Australia. Loved it.
  • Such a beautiful building and informative display. If you like plants and what they can do, come here. :)
  • This is an extraordinary museum. Wonderful collection of all kind of plant seeds, displayed in the most wonderful and magic setting. The whole exhibit one big art installation, in my opinion. Was fortunate to meet the curator. Inspiring person with lot of passion for presentation and collection. One of the highlights of my Adelaide visit!
