This display of artworks and manuscripts explores the life and interests of Joseph Banks (1743-1820) through some of his extraordinary collections.
Banks was one of the most influential people in British science in the late 1700s. Thanks to a large inherited fortune, he dramatically changed how many people understood the natural world and used its resources.
Exhibition highlights include:
Artworks from all three of Captain Cook's Pacific voyages
The first public display of an early botanical manuscript which depicts and describes the local uses of medicinal plants from Kerala, southern India
