Horniman Museum & Gardens


Ever wondered how a bee sees the world? How can a plant move when it’s rooted in the ground? And why is dung so important?

Discover all this and more in our new family-friendly exhibition at the Horniman Museum.

Advance tickets on sale now.

Plantastic brings the miniature world of plants to life on a massive scale. From super seed pods and exploding cucumbers to sun-seeking flowers and a huge crawl-through root system, interactive exhibits and games will bring visitors up close to all kinds of fantastic plant life, to reveal how plants feed, move, reproduce and survive.

The exhibition also explores how we use plants in our daily lives, and how essential they are for the world’s survival.

From May 2015, Plantastic will be accompanied by specially designed and themed outdoor displays including a mass planting of sunflowers, a floral picture of the ‘anatomy’ of a flower, and a border themed around plants that attract pollinating insects.

Horniman Members go free.

Please note: On Saturday 14 February, Plantastic will be open to the public from 12.30pm.
