Natural History Museum, Tring

The Natural History Museum at Tring was built in 1889 to house the incredible collections of Walter Rothschild. A keen zoologist and an eccentric, determined character, upon his death the building and collection were gifted to the nation and became part of the Natural History Museum. Today, while much of the interior retains its Victorian charm, the Museum runs with a full programme of inspiring exhibitions and events for families and adults.

Visit today to discover animal specimens from around the world, from tiny beetles to enormous bears. Explore the galleries filled with fascinating specimens, and choose from a wide range of events from pop-up cinemas to sleepovers and Toddler time.
