Drawn from the council's cultural collections, this exhibition looks back over 150 years at the Portland Botanical Gardens. Opening in 1859, Portland's gardens are one of the oldest in the state and listed on the Victorian Heritage Register.

The exhibition examines various aspects of the gardens including: the early years, the curators, the curator's cottage, islands and bridges, sports in the gardens, the Chinese prisoners and the Portland lifeboat.
