Located within Kew Gardens, Museum No.1 houses the Plants+People exhibition.
This shows the many fascinating ways in which we depend on plants, including products from the Amazon to Australia; the artistry of Japanese papers and lacquerware; plant-based medicines like quinine and vincristine that helped revolutionise human healthcare; and examples of the raw materials that make our music and feed, clothe and invigorate us. The building was designed by Decimus Burton and first opened to the public in 1857.http://www.culture24.org.uk/am18472
