The Garden Museum explores and celebrates British gardens and gardening through its collection, temporary exhibitions, events and garden. Visitors can see a permanent display of paintings, tools, ephemera and historic artefacts – a glimpse into the uniquely British love affair with gardens. Whether you are an enthusiastic amateur gardener, more of a specialist or someone with a passion for museums, history or architecture, the Garden Museum has something for you.
The Silent Space
At the heart of the Garden Museum is the Sackler Garden. Designed by Dan Pearson as an ‘Eden’ of rare plants, the garden is inspired by John Tradescant’s journeys as a plant collector. Taking advantage of the sheltered, warm space, Dan has created a green retreat in response to the bronze and glass architecture, conjuring up a calm, reflective atmosphere. This is intended to be a garden in which to take your time.
