Herbarium

The museum contains a rare Herbarium: 6 volumes of over 1,000 pressed plants collected by William Wise, herbalist and sometime Mayor of Launceston, collected in the local area  between the 1880’s and the 1920’s. Wise bound the great volumes himself.

A page is turned every week to display a different plant.

Details of the plants he collected are available online at
