You can get some of the best views of the building from the mezzanine floor. The ground floor is a temporary exhibition. A secret group includes some of the items which are not on offer such as Gnome, garden tools and shoes.
The most interesting of The Garden Museum exhibition is the cosmic landscape featuring the art of Charles Jenks Earth. Garden in the museum garden has the same plants that grow in the Tradescants garden about 400 years ago. The middle of the ggarden is a knot garden. In addition, the cafe offers some seats in the garden cover, but it was very cold when you visit in early September because there will be no buyers. There is a beautiful flower arrangement above the door that leads from the hall to the main building. Gorgeous and well known museum in the beautifully renovated St. Mary’s Church in Lambeth is dedicated to the factory and the history of the park.
The permanent collections of the museum are displayed at the highest level (accessible by elevator).

In the basement, there is temporary exhibition space, a gift shop and a cafe. Outside the The Garden Museum, there is a knot garden along the lines of the 17th century with the cultivation of authentic history, which was opened by the Queen Mother in 1983. It’s very small, but worth a visit for keen gardeners, or those who want to see something different.
The Garden Museum for the cultivation of ornamental plants such as flowers and love and exhibition of money explore the history of commercial interests. It also draws attention to the current concerns about the environmental and social international trade that give effect in flowers and accusations of exploitation in the weak labor.
This exhibition looks at both sides of the debate, including a new movement for fair trade flowers and also it celebrates the farmers in the country. The industry has disappeared, but it can be revived by a new generation of farmers and environmentally conscious.

Flowers and foliage of the cultivated garden are sold to visitors to the exhibition as an alternative to the interest of foreign unsustainable. Local groups involved in the garden are also able to sell flowers on their own.
