The University's department of botany has put together a very interesting exhibition of economically useful plants and their products here. The museum was opened in 1883 and provides you with information on general botany, as well as the range, domestication and processing of plants which are useful for technology. There is an emphasis on economically useful plants from the Tropics. In another interesting section you can learn about how spices and medicines are extracted from plants. A visit to the museum can ideally be combined with a walk through Planten un Blomen park, where the old botanic garden is located.
