Museum Gardens, York | History, Photos & Visiting Information

Сад-музей - Heritage Museums & Gardens. Фотографии

Museum Gardens (Yorkshire Museum)

Museum Gardens is a public park stretching along the north bank of the River Ouse between Museum Street and Marygate. It takes its name from the Yorkshire Museum, which stands in the northern area of the gardens.

History

The Gardens were established in the 1830s by the Yorkshire Philosophical Society (YPS). At that time the word 'philosophical' did not have the same meaning it does today. It was roughly synonymous with 'scientific'. The YPS had the aim of promoting public understanding and appreciation of natural and social sciences.

Founding the gardens helped promote both natural science and an appreciation of antiquities, for the gardens encompassed an extraordinary wealth of historical artefacts from parts of the earliest Roman fort in York, a medieval hospital and monastery, and the medieval city walls.

It also provided space to build a museum covering the natural and social history of Yorkshire. The Yorkshire Museum opened to the public in 1830 and was one of the first purpose-built museums in Britain. The Museum Gardens were created for the YPS by Sir John Naysmith and included a pond, a conservatory, and a menagerie.

The Museum Gardens is known for its outstanding collection of plants and flowers. The Garden is a multi-award winner in the annual Yorkshire in Bloom competition.

Features include an Oriental Border, Butterfly Border, and a Bulb Bank with thousands of vibrant daffodils in spring.

The Rock Garden features alpine plants and dwarf conifers, while the Fern Garden is planted around carved stones from the abbey ruins.

A Prairie Border showcases plants once common on the North American prairie, while the Observatory Border features plants with star-shaped flowers – an appropriate them as the garden is laid out around one of the oldest working astronomical observatories in Britain.

The Hospitium water gate arch

The museum that gives the garden its name opened in 1830 to hold the collections of the YPS. It is built on top of some of the medieval buildings of St Mary's Abbey.

You can see the remains of these medieval foundations in the museum basement. The museum was designed in Greek Revival style by the architect William Wilkins.

It is meant to remind viewers of a Greek temple since the museum is supposed to be a 'shrine to science'.

The museum has outstanding collections of Yorkshire geology, palaeontology, natural history, and archaeology. You can see carved stones and other objects from St Mary's Abbey. See Roman tombstones and mosaic floors found in York and a huge marble head from a Roman statue of Emperor Constantine which once stood inside the Roman fort of Eboracum.

One poignant exhibit showcases skeletons of those who died at the bloody Battle of Towton in 1461. They were buried in a mass grave on the site of Towton Hall. Even more moving is the skull of a young woman discovered in a well at Clifford's Tower. She is thought to have died in the tragic massacre of over 150 Jewish residents of York during mob violence in 1190.

The gardens began as the grounds of St Mary's Abbey, the most important and powerful monastery in the north of England.

The abbey was founded by William the Conqueror during his efforts to exert Norman control over the region after his successful bid for the English throne in 1066.

The abbot of St Mary's was one of the most powerful ecclesiastical figures in medieval England, on a par with the archbishop of York.

The Abbey was suppressed by Henry VIII in his Dissolution of the Monasteries. All that remains of the Abbey buildings are the nave and crossing of the monastic church and the outline of the cloister. The abbey precinct is surrounded by high walls, most of which are still intact and make up the most complete set of monastic walls in the country.

The walls were necessary, for the monks of St Mary's and the townsfolk of York clashed repeatedly over the centuries. The gateway through the abbey walls on Marygate is known as St Mary's Lodge. It is now the headquarters of the York Museums Trust.

St Mary's Abbey

In the centre of the gardens is the Hospitium, an attractive building made of two timber-framed upper floors on a stone base. The name suggests that the building was used to house abbey guests. Next to the Hospitium is a stone archway that once led to a water gate on the River Ouse.

The ground floor of the Hospitium may have been used to store goods brought by water to a landing point by the water gate.

The stone-built ground floor dates to the 14th century and the archway was built around 1500.

The Hospitium was used by the Yorkshire Philosophical Society to store their collections until the Yorkshire Museum was complete. The building is now a popular function venue for weddings and private events.

The Hospitium

Bordering on Museum Street in the north-east corner of the Gardens is the ruin of a medieval hospital dedicated to St Leonard.

The remains we see today include the hospital chapel, undercroft, and entrance passage. St Leonards was one of the oldest and largest hospitals in medieval England.

As a religious organisation, it was forced to close by Henry VIII during his Dissolution of the Monasteries.

St Leonard's Hospital

On the northern edge of Museum Gardens stands the Multangular Tower, a beautifully-preserved 4th-century Roman tower that was built to defend the fort of Eboracum.

The tower stands roughly 30 feet high, with the bottom 20 feet Roman construction and the top 10 feet a medieval rebuilding featuring several arrow slits. Roman tiles are built into the tower wall.

Inside the tower are several Roman stone coffins brought here from excavated sites around York.

The Multangular Tower

A stone's throw from the Multangular Tower is the Anglian Tower, a watchtower built onto the Roman walls after the departure of the Romans. This one of just two secular Anglo-Saxon structures in England.

The Anglian Tower

Within the Gardens stands the York Observatory, begun in 1832 and the oldest working observatory in Yorkshire. Highlights include a four-inch refractor telescope built by York native Thomas Cooke in 1850, but the real prize is an 1811 clock that keeps time by observing astronomical alignments. It was at one time the clock by which all others in York were set.

In the Victorian period, anyone could check a timepiece against the Observatory Clock by paying a sixpence fee. Curiously, the Observatory Clock is always exactly four minutes and 20 seconds behind Greenwich Mean Time.

St Olave's Church

Immediately outside Museum Gardens on Marygate stands St Olave's Church, which can trace its foundation to at least AD 1055. It was founded by Earl Siward of York, whose stone coffin lid is in the Yorkshire Museum.

Getting There

Museum Gardens can be accessed from Marygate through St Mary's Lodge, beside St Olave's Church, but most people will enter the Gardens off Museum Street, immediately north of the Lendal Bridge. If in doubt, just follow the pedestrian signs for the Yorkshire Museum.

Be aware that the Gardens gates are locked in the evenings!

Heritage Museums and Gardens (100 acres), formerly the Heritage Plantation of Sandwich, is located at 67 Grove Street, Sandwich, Massachusetts. The public garden, with its nationally significant collection of rhododendrons hybridized by Charles Dexter, over 1,000 varieties of daylilies and extensive hosta collection, is complemented by three gallery buildings containing a world-class collection of American automobiles, American folk art and a working 1919 carousel and rare carousel figures.

The museum's grounds were once the estate of noted rhododendron hybridizer Charles O. Dexter, where between 1921 and 1943 Dexter developed between 5,000 and 10,000 seedlings annually. He planted many on the site. In 1969, Josiah K. Lilly III (1916–1995) and his wife established Heritage Plantation of Sandwich on the property.

Attractions

The gardens and grounds

The gardens' principal interest is its collection of thousands of rhododendrons, which now include 125 of the 145 known Dexter cultivars. Their typical bloom time is from Memorial Day Weekend to mid-June.

This collection has been painstakingly recovered since 1972, as Dexter's own named cultivars had been scattered without records. Each cultivar had to be recollected from gardens and nurseries up and down the East Coast.

The site was prepared in 1972, and by the summer of 1977 it included over 300 plants representing nearly 100 cultivars, with an additional 25 cultivars as small plants in the nursery. All are now mature plantings.

Other items of horticultural interest include holly, daylily, herb, hosta, and heather gardens, as well as more than a thousand varieties of trees, shrubs and flowers, many labeled.

The grounds also include the Old East Mill, a windmill built in Orleans, Massachusetts in 1800 and extensively restored in 1999–2000. Visitors may view its interior on special days. In 2002 a labyrinth was added to the grounds, designed by Marty Cain, one of the best-known labyrinth designers in North America.

The Hart Family Maze Garden was established on the grounds in 2005, and a Cape Cod Hydrangea garden was added in the fall of 2008. For children and families, Hidden Hollow was added in 2010. It is a Certified Outdoor Nature Classroom where children and families can rediscover the joy of being outside together.

In 2015, an adventure park was added on the grounds, after much opposition from neighbors.[1]

1908 Charles Looff Carousel

Heritage Museums & Gardens owns an original 1908 Looff Carousel made at Loof's factory in Riverside, Rhode Island.[2] The carousel was originally made for an amusement park in Meridian, Mississippi.

[2] The carousel changed hands a few times starting in the 1950s, and was purchased by Heritage Museums & Gardens founder Josiah Lilly in 1968.

[2] A special building was constructed for the carousel, which was opened to the public in 1972.[2][3]

The museum celebrated the 110th birthday of the carousel in September 2018 with a ceremony attended by two of Charles Looff’s descendants.[3]

SBG Heritage Museum

Opening Hours SBG Heritage Museum CDL Green Gallery (Closed 21 March till 11 April 2022)
Mon – Sun 9am – 6pm 9am – 6pm
Closed  Every last Monday of the Month Every last Tuesday of the Month

The 240sqm SBG Heritage Museum is located in Holttum Hall, which is next to Botany Centre in the Tanglin Core of the Gardens. Built in 1921 to serve as the Director of the Gardens' office and laboratory, the two-storey building has been designated as an Urban Redevelopment Authority conservation building.

This was where Professor Eric Holttum, the Gardens' Director from 1925 to 1949, developed the orchid breeding technique which enabled the efficient production of healthy seedlings in sterile flasks from a hybrid seed.

This technique, which is still used today, was a key factor that stimulated orchid industries throughout the region.

The SBG Heritage Museum features interactive and multimedia exhibits and panels that detail the Gardens' rich heritage.

Historical items that are on display include old photographs, artefacts, plant specimens, rare botanical books and botanical paintings that date back to the early 19th century. Oral recordings of Ridley during his 100th birthday has also been integrated into an interactive display.

The exhibits in the Museum are supported by CDL through the Garden City Fund, a registered charity and institution of public character established by the National Parks Board.

NParks is honoured to be one of the recipients of the artillery shell casings from the 21-Gun Salute for Singapore’s founding Prime Minister, the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew. The casing is on display at the Singapore Botanic Gardens Heritage Museum.

CDL Green Gallery

Developed and donated by CDL, the 314sqm CDL Green Gallery is a new eco-friendly building sited on Holttum Lawn.

It is conceptualised as an extension of the Heritage Museum, and will feature botanical- or greening-related exhibits that will be changed every six to nine months.

The first exhibition held there showcased Singapore's greening journey, to commemorate 50 Years of Greening our island.

The gallery will be Singapore's first zero energy Green Gallery.

A key feature of the building is the solar photovoltaic (PV) cladded roof panels that are expected to harvest all the energy required for the building's operations.

The solar panels are expected to generate an annual energy yield of over 31,000 kWh, which is more than the Gallery's estimated annual energy consumption of about 30,000 kWh/year.

Using innovative design, the development will cause minimal disruption to the site as it will use two eco-innovative features that are introduced in Singapore for the first time – the biomaterial known as Hempcrete (largely made from the hemp plant), and a prefabricated modular system.

A mixture of hemp core (shiv), lime binders, and water, Hempcrete will be used for the external wall cladding of the Heritage Museum. The high thermal material is ideal for Singapore's humid climate as it creates good indoor air quality. It is also highly durable, and naturally pest, mould, mildew and fire resistant.

Another advantage of using Hempcrete is that it can be precast into sections at an external site using a prefabricated modular system and brought to the Gardens for installation. This eliminates massive wet works usually required in building developments, and results in faster construction time with a lower impact on the environment.

  • Other eco-friendly features at the CDL Green Gallery @ SBG Heritage Museum include:
  • Green walls – the east and west facade will be cladded with fauna-attracting plant species to enrich biodiversity
  • Green roof – selected drought resistant plant species will be incorporated to lower the Urban Heat Island effect around the building
  • Energy efficient interior fittings – the building will be fitted with LED lights and energy efficient air-conditioning systems

Summer garden

The Summer Garden is the oldest garden in St Petersburg. The summer residence of Peter the Great was founded in 1704 on the site of the former Swedish mansion.

The layout of the garden formed in the 1710s. The three main paths were laid out from the Neva into the heart of the garden, while the rest intersected them to form a rectangular network.

  • The Italian marble sculptures from the original collection of Peter the Great were placed in the closest to the Neva part of the garden known as the First Summer Garden.
  • It was there where most of the entertainment facilities were located and the surviving till now Summer Palace of Peter I constructed in 1710 – 1712 by the architect Domenico Trezzini.
  • The southern part of the garden included some administrative buildings, a kitchen-garden, greenhouses and groups of fruit trees.

In the central part of the First Summer Garden there were four bosquets (areas defined by clipped walls of shrubs). А flower parterre was laid out along the Swan Canal. The Carp Pond in the southern part of the garden has been preserved to the present days.

Numerous fountains were installed in the Summer Garden by the order of Peter I who had a great liking for watery amusements. The fountains were built on the sites of the Central Alley, in the bosquets and the Green Studies, in the centre of the Carp Pond.

In the southern part of the Summer Garden, there was a Labyrinth of numerous paths and areas surrounded with cut grass. The fountain was decorated with figures on the subjects of Aesop’s fables. The Labyrinth and Aesop’s fountain were ruined during the flood in 1777.

In the 18th century alongside the Summer Palace there were some other constructions in the garden: galleries along the Neva, the Grotto along the Fontanka, greenhouses inside the garden, auxiliary and administrative premises adjoining the Summer Palace.

The palace for Catherine I was built on the bank of the Neva in the 1720s.

In 1732, during the reign of Anna Ioannovna (1730 – 1740), the Summer Palace for the new empress was built by the architect Francesco Bartolomeo Rastrelli (both of the buildings have not been preserved).

Unfortunately, a disastrous flood in 1777 wrecked the garden. Most of the structures and fountains of the Summer Garden were destroyed by the hurricane wind.

The second half of the 18th century was marked not only by losses but by some significant acquisitions as well. The grand design of the Neva embankment got finally completed, and the territory of the garden was separated from the road with an elegant railing created by Georg Friedrich Veldten and Pyotr Egorov (the railing has been preserved).

Summer garden in 19th century

In 1824, the Neva again burst its banks flooding the garden. Its restoration took around three years. The old layout was preserved but later, in 1826, the architect Carlo Rossi reconstructed the “old Grotto” turning it into the garden pavilion – the Coffee House (it has been preserved).

It was also the period when a number of new structures appeared in the garden to the design of Ludwig Charlemagne – Baudet: the Tea House wooden pavilion (it has been preserved) and the iron railing in the southern part of the garden (it has been preserved). The fan-shaped structures flanking the Neva railing were added by Ludwig Charlemagne -Baudet in 1830.

During the 19th century the Summer Garden was the favourite strolling-place for various walks of society.

In 1855, the monument to Ivan Krylov (it has been preserved) was mounted on one of the sites of the garden (former French bosquet).

Summer Garden in 20th century

In 1934, the Summer Garden with its collection of marble sculpture, the Summer Palace of Peter the Great and the Summer House of Peter the Great received the status of a museum.

Studying of the monument and its collections began.

For the first time ever its restoration project was developed on the basis of historical documents by the landscape architect Tatyana Dubyago, but World War II interrupted the ensemble’s development.

In spite of the war damage the collection of sculpture has been preserved and not a single tree was cut down in the Summer Garden even during the siege. The Summer Palace was repaired and welcomed its first visitors in 1947.

  1. In the late 1990s, the development of the draft project of restoration of the Summer Garden began.
  2. In 2004, the Russian Museum was awarded the administration of the entire complex of the Summer Garden, the Summer Palace and the Summer House of Peter of Great.
  3. Since 2006 the programme of the restoration project has been resumed in the Summer Garden.

The project was considered during sittings of the Academic Council, the Academic Expert Council for Cultural Heritage Preservation, Government of St Petersburg.

The advice of the Board of the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation was taken into consideration.

Following the project, the original layout suggested by Peter the Great was left intact; four bosquets were recreated as well as Small Greenhouse, Red Garden, the fountains of the Central alley and high trellises forming a background for marble sculptures.

In June 2009, the Building Company “Profil” in collaboration with the St Petersburg Institute “Lenproektrestavratsia” supervising the project launched its realization.

From May 2012, the garden is open to visitors.

Исторические музеи и сады (100 акров), бывшие Наследие плантации Сэндвича , расположены по адресу 67 Grove Street, Sandwich, Massachusetts . Общественный сад с его национально значимой коллекцией рододендронов, гибридизированных Чарльзом Декстером, более 1000 разновидностей лилейников и обширной коллекцией хосты, дополняется тремя зданиями галереи, в которых находится коллекция мирового класса американских автомобилей, американского народного искусства и действующая карусель 1919 года. и редкие карусельные фигурки.

Территория музея когда-то была усадьбой известного гибридизатора рододендронов Чарльза О. Декстера , где с 1921 по 1943 год Декстер выращивал от 5000 до 10000 саженцев ежегодно. Посадил много на участке. В 1969 году Джозия К. Лилли III (1916–1995) и его жена основали на этом участке историческую плантацию сэндвичей.

Достопримечательности

Сады и прилегающие территории

Главный интерес сада – его коллекция из тысяч рододендронов , которые теперь включают 125 из 145 известных сортов Dexter. Их типичное время цветения – с выходных в День поминовения до середины июня.

Эта коллекция тщательно восстанавливалась с 1972 года, так как сорта, названные Декстером, были разбросаны без учета записей. Каждый сорт нужно было вспомнить из садов и питомников на Восточном побережье и далее.

Участок был подготовлен в 1972 году, и к лету 1977 года он насчитывал более 300 растений, представляющих почти 100 сортов, и еще 25 культурных сортов в качестве небольших растений в питомнике. Все сейчас зрелые насаждения.

Другие объекты, представляющие интерес для садоводства, включают в себя сады падуба , лилейника , травы , хосты и вереска , а также более тысячи разновидностей деревьев, кустарников и цветов, многие из которых имеют маркировку.

На территории также находится Старая Восточная мельница, ветряная мельница, построенная в Орлеане, штат Массачусетс, в 1800 году и тщательно отреставрированная в 1999–2000 годах. Посетители могут осмотреть его интерьер в особые дни.

В 2002 году на территории был построен лабиринт , спроектированный Марти Кейном , одним из самых известных проектировщиков лабиринтов в Северной Америке.

1908 Чарльз Луфф Карусель

Heritage Museums & Gardens владеет оригинальной каруселью Looff 1908 года, изготовленной на фабрике Loof в Риверсайде, штат Род-Айленд . Карусель изначально создавалась для парка развлечений в Меридиане, штат Миссисипи .

Карусель несколько раз переходила из рук в руки, начиная с 1950-х годов, и была приобретена основателем Heritage Museums & Gardens Джозией Лилли в 1968 году.

Для карусели было построено специальное здание, которое было открыто для публики в 1972 году.

В сентябре 2018 года музей отметил 110-летие карусели церемонией, на которой присутствовали двое потомков Чарльза Луффа.
