An herbarium is a library of preserved plants that is of immense practical use and of fundamental importance to science available to amateur and professional alike. 

The Liverpool Herbarium has an amazing heritage as it was created by William Roscoe and his friends in 1802, as an important component of the first Liverpool Botanic Garden. Today it houses over 400000 specimens including 98% of the British and Irish native plants.

Find out the many uses that Herbariums have to modern science and the fascinating history of the Liverpool herbarium now housed in the World Museum, Liverpool.
