Museum Website

This 7000-square-foot Museum is located on the grounds of the Missouri Botanical Gardens in the Garden’s Victorian District. The Georgian structure was built to house the Garden’s original library, herbarium and natural history specimens.  Subsequently, it housed offices, a restaurant, board and staff meeting rooms and computer class rooms, and it served as the Garden’s main auditorium.​

The scientific heart of the Garden for more than a century before closing to the public in 1982, Henry Shaw's original museum has reopened following a painstaking restoration and offers a unique opportunity to view rarely-seen botanical art, artifacts, and more collected over the last 160 years.
