Botany Hall

botanyhallThe museum's historic Botany Hall investigates the incredible diversity of plant life. The hall emphasizes four different biomes found in the continental United States: a Florida everglade, a Mt. Rainier alpine meadow, an Arizona desert, and a Pennsylvania valley. All illustrate how varying conditions of temperature and water affect plant life. The displays allow for an in-depth look at the world of plants, recreating habitats from around the world.

Friends of Botany

The Friends of Botany group works to increase awareness about the resources offered by Botany at Carnegie Museum of Natural History. Since the herbarium is open five days a week, we need to spread the word that Carnegie Museum has the best representative collections of western Pennsylvania vascular flora. Visit the Friends of Botany page for more information about joining our efforts, or to learn how to schedule a guest speaker for your group or organization.
