I brought my 1 year old Daughter here and we had such a lovely day. Although the museum is very small it is absolutely crammed with exhibits. We spent about 2 hours here and would definitely come back - there's just so much to see and is perfect for smaller children as it's much less busy than its London counterpart.

Lovely day out. Would highly recommend. Our 2 year old loves it... we come back again and again. It is a museum of stuffed animals (which is a bit weird) but the kids love it.

What a little gem! It's simply a do not miss in Tring. Kids will love seeing the stuffed animals (gorilla anyone?) and the array of other creatures. Brilliant place!

We have visited this place often. My 9 year old daughter loves it. Just wandering round the galleries looking at all the fascinating animal exhibits, opening the display drawers of weird and wonderful insects. It a good few hours out. However, I would avoid this place on a rainy day though as it gets really busy. Also there isn't sufficient... More

Spent a great few hours here with our children. Cafe was busy but there are lots of great places to eat just down the road in Tring so it wasn't a problem. Highly recommend for older children.

I've been going for years ever since my Grandparents used to take me, and Its always a joy to wonder around and see some of the world rarest, exotic and even extinct wildlife from around the world. If you look past the fact that most the animals were shot in order to be displayed then its a wonderful day out... More

This is an outstation of the Natural History Museum in Kensington. It contains a wide ranged of stuffed animals, birds and fish as well as butterflies, moths and insects. They date from Victorian times and some of them are therefore showing their age but they are very interesting nevertheless. What's done is done but we just wish the Victorians had... More

Couldn't have been better, great displays, plenty to look at but not too big or busy, really fun temporary exhibition on Dodos too so will be good to return to see what's next. Staff we great, really helpful, courteous and knowledgable. Nice places for lunch nearby too. We'll be back & couldn't recommend enough

I hadn't been to this museum for a long time and I had almost forgotten how interesting it was and how it could keep a couple of young schoolchildren with me equally interested.
