I highly recommend visiting this museum for families and educational pursuits. Not only is it free it was amazing to see so many types of animals under one roof. We took our 4 year old and she loved it. We will definitely be visiting again...More

A relatively small museum but jam packed full of interesting artefacts. Free entry however there is a relatively cheap guide book that can purchased. There is also a very simple cafe in the basement offering tea, coffee, cakes and kids lunch boxes.

A total surprise. Not what I was expecting but for me a blast from the past. I remember when I was young visiting local museums which were stuffed with foxes, badgers etc & creepy crawlies. This was even better & the kids loved it esp...More

I've been to the Natural History Museum in London but never realised there was a branch in Tring, so what a nice surprise that was! The large part of this collection is devoted to stuffed animals that were collected by the Rothschilds around a century...More

According to the website they're only closed between 24th and 26th December. I'd give them a call to check about New Years Day and the 2nd January though. They're usually open on bank holidays. If you haven't been, it's... More
