Currently exhibiting: Seeds in Disguise: The Biology and Lore of Ornamental Seeds
Explore the ordinary . . .
Seeds are all around us: we eat them; we plant them; they parachute from dandelions; they catch in the dog’s coat or on your socks; they drop from the trees; and sometimes they even hang around your neck. This exhibit features ornamental seeds “disguised” as beads in jewellery, trinkets and ornaments.
Seeds, like people, have many interesting facets to their complex biology. Travel, chemistry, medicine and industry are part of the stories of the ornamental seeds in this exhibition. Beware – some seeds are dangerous!
This exhibition is colourful and elegantly laid out. Divided into six topics:
- Beans: Diversity in a Plant Family
- Seed Signals
- Seeds from Food Plants
- Seeds with Commercial Use
- Poisonous Seeds Among Us
- On the High Seas
When: Open most holidays (including thanksgiving) Closed Mondays during the winter.
