In 1795 the National Botanic Gardens were founded at Glasnevin. There was a magnificent restoration of the Turner Curvilinear Range of glasshouses completed for the bicentenary of the Garden in 1995. A new purpose-built herbarium/library was opened in 1997. Improved visitor and education facilities have been provided in a new Visitor Centre. The work of plant identification and classification, of documenting, labelling and publishing continues, as does that of education and service to the visiting public.
