The Botany Collection
The Manchester Museum has a wide range of products inspired by our extraordinary collections. The herbarium at the Manchester Museum houses an extensive botany collection which includes three-quarters of a million plant specimens. The collections are catalogued and photographed to document the world's flora, to further facilitate their use and provide a permanent record of botanical diversity. The collection is used in teaching at the University of Manchester to enhance the student experience and loaned worldwide for research into climate change, naming new species of DNA analysis. Every purchase supports the museum and its mission to build understanding between cultures and a more sustainable world.
