Visitor Infomation


The herbarium is open on week days only from 8:30 to 17:00 (closed on public holidays),although it is advisable to make an appointment. Visitors are required to sign the visitors book. To prevent insect infestations all incoming material must be frozen for 48 hours before it can be taken into the herbarium. A freezer and a drying oven are available to visitors (small consignments only), but visitors are responsible for their own specimens. Abandoned, unlabeled material will be discarded. A quick guide is available for visitors who wish to do their own identifications.
