The museum was founded in order to rescue from demolition the abandoned ancient church of St Mary's, the burial place of John Tradescant (c 1570–1638), the first great gardener and plant-hunter in British history.
There is a permanent display of paintings, tools, ephemera and historic artefacts which give a glimpse into the uniquely British love affair with gardens. Three exhibitions a year explore British gardening.
The museum will be closed for redevelopment from November 2015 to January 2017.
