All about how plants and the economy interact. Very interesting seeing the categories in which various fruit belong, and some were quite surprising. Free to enter as well.

Having studied some botany this little museum really hit the things I enjoyed the most from my studies. Very eye-opening to understand what all the things we use and eat actually are and how they are related. Very well displayed! Helpful and friendly staff. Clear highlight of the botanic gardens.

This is the last surviving Museum of Economic Botany in the world, and it reflects not just the indigenous plants that have contributed to Australia's economic survival, but ALL the plants that have featured in its history, starting with the understanding Aborigines had of the plants at their disposal, to all the plants introduced here over the centuries. Absolutely fascinating, the many displays show seeds of the most incredible variety, and you MUST see the hundreds of fruits and fungi made of papier-mache in the late 1800's, looking like freshly picked apples and pears. I was completely enchanted.

Don’t just pass this building within the Adelaide Botanic Gardens. Have a look at the exhibition- it is the true Victorian style with samples of hundreds of economic plants. Be surprised by the relationships between plant families and models of early plant varieties.
