The Botanical Garden is part of and forms the border around the Natural History Museum of the University of Oslo. It was founded in 1814 and is the oldest scientific garden in Norway. Through research, education and plant conservation, the garden seeks to increase public awareness of the importance of plant diversity. The plant collections contain approximately 8600 species with over 35,000 plants . The Toyen Manor which was a gift was given in 1812 and is located in the garden as well. The Palm House from 1868 and The Victoria House from 1876 present exotic plants from other parts of the world.

It has the most wonderful gardens to wander around…
