Abstract: In 1924 prof. K. regelis, the first director of Kaunas Botanical Garden, began building the museum which at that time was a teaching exposure of Botany cabinet. from the exhibits of that time still remained only cones which prof. K. regelis brought from switzerland (Saxifraga oppositifolia, Abies nordmanniana), in 1930 from Brazil (Araucaria araucana, Anona sp.) and from Norway (Cladonia alpestris). The museum exhibits were also supplied by other researchers of Botanical Garden: K. Grybauskas, prof. t. Ivanauskas, prof. A. Minkevičius, prof. J. Dagys. In 1958 from Michurinsk fruit moulages, among them presently defunct Lithuanian aquatic plant Trapa natans were purchased. Herbarium has a high educational, cognitive value, in particular – the two herbarium books with shrubs, trees, herbaceous plant samples collected in caucasus by an unknown author in 1888–1889. The text was written in Polish providing plant names in Latin, sometimes in russian. currently the museum of Kau­ nas Botanical Garden of Vytautas Magnus University has herbarium containing more than 1708 exhibits (excl. herbarium)
