Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation


Institute open to researchers by appointment

24 March 2022

Since Carnegie Mellon University has lifted some of the restrictions on visitors, we are pleased to be able to welcome onsite researchers back to the Institute by appointment. Please contact us to make an appointment. However, we do remain closed to the general public as there will be no spring exhibition nor onsite tours. We appreciate your patience and hope to be able to welcome you to the botanical tranquility of our walnut-walled lobby in the fall.
