Having never been to this museum although seen the signs on many occasions as in town decided to visit. Not disappointed. What a great little museum with plenty on show.

Had only been to the Natural History Museum in London but now live closer to Tring. Fantastic to have this museum and all its collections within easy reach. Some exhibits are very old indeed. They have a wonderful hummingbird collection...who knew some of them were so tiny!

My son went on Martyn Lewis' website to look for Free places to visit and Tring was included! It is housed in a beautiful old building and absolutely crammed packed with stuffed animals of all shapes and sizes! It was given to the town by the affluent Rothschild family. There is only a small cafe on site but a lovely... More

Very good museum. Free entry and free car park. Lots of stuffed animals to see. Nice Cafe aswell. Easy enough to find, you could quite easily spend 2-3hrs with the kids looking at things.

This is a hidden treasure, free to enter and packed full of learning (as long as you don't mind stuffed animals). Only downside is that there is only a small cafe and it is a bit of a walk to town. If it is nice recommend you go for a walk in the lovely park nearby.

Went on an educational visit to Tring muesum today and really enjoyed it. I personally think it is better then the Natural History Muesum in London if you love animals. I spent over 2 hours reading, admiring and taking photos of species I love, never have heard of or will never have the opportunity to see. The taxidermy varies with... More
