Reopened in 2018, the Stephen and Peter Sachs Museum at the Missouri Botanical Garden was restored and renovated to its original appearance when it first opened in 1859. Designed by Henry Shaw’s prominent St. Louis architect, George I. Barnett, the Museum’s exterior includes Classical motifs and was built using regional materials of brick and stone.

The Museum interior architecture was inspired by the Museum No. 2 of Economic Botany, which is on the grounds of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew in London, England. One of the most special features of the Museum, the botanical ceiling mural in the Evans Gallery is a recreation of Shaw’s original commission by painter Leon Pomarede in 1859, which features many plants that have been in the Garden’s collections throughout the years, and can also currently be found on the grounds.

Today, the Museum features changing exhibitions highlighting important plants and botanical collections in the Garden’s research and collections.
