  • Excellent free museum. Well displayed and great for all ages. Interesting historical connection to the Rothschild family and the adjacent Tring Park.  more »
  • We went with the kids during the holidays, leading to a huge number of children. So I recommend to visit outside the feriami in England. The entire collection is doing additional impression when we know she used to be private and only then passed to the needs of the Museum. I would recommend to anyone

  • Good place to go with the kids if they are interested in animals. Free entery. The car park isn't very big. 90% of the time it's full. But don't worry. If you go up the road do a right then the first left. You can park on the side of the road.
  • Fantastic museum to visit. I visited 30th September. My grandchildren are 5 years and 18 months and they had a wonderful time, both taking a keen interest in the world around them. Staff are fabulous. Friendly. Welcoming.
  • Brilliant Museum worth the trip, it's free to get in & plenty of parking. Only negative is the cafe is not open Monday to Friday so could not get a hit drink. But would definitely recommend.
  • Lovely well managed museum, & it's free! It's full of stuffed animals collected in 19th century from all over the world. If you're not squeamish you & your kids will love it.
  • An excellent place to Bring children. A car park is walking distance away. A fun day out for all
