Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation


Institute closed to public on Tuesdays and Fridays

19 October 2022

Due to an unforeseen staffing shortage, we will be closed to the public on Tuesdays and Fridays beginning the week of 24 October. We deeply apologize for the inconvenience and hope that you will continue to visit us on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays during our normal hours. On display in the gallery we have the travel show for our 16th International Exhibition of Botanical Art & Illustration, which includes the 37 artworks now in our collection. As always, you can call or email before your visit to confirm our hours.
