I took my nephew here to kill a spare hour, and wish we'd had longer. Although relatively small (compared to London!) there's a lot to see here and my nephew loved it. The old wooden display cases were lovely too. Well worth a visit, and...More

We really enjoyed the visit. The children were given a bucket of soft toys/animals and had to look for those particular animals as they went round. They thoroughly enjoyed it. Although it is small, there is so much to see. Very helpful staff.

Not so large as to be overwhelming, but enough to be very interesting. If you can get one of the workshops as well, very informative. Liked that there is not too much information to take in. The displays if birds from all over the world...More

A fantastic place to go with the family! Even my one year old nephew was very amused! Never knew so many animals in the world and the museum is extremely good!

Rarely give 5 stars to anything, but this smallish museum is a fascinating gem. Wonderful day out for adults and children. Very knowledgeable and pleasant staff. If you love animals and natural history this is the place to go. And afterwards, a 5 min drive...More

While staying with friends in Tring, we were taken to this superb presentation of all things 'Nature'. I really did not expect to find something so comprehensive and well-presented outside of a big centre, like London. I could have spent a lot longer than I...More

This was an unplanned visit with a 6 and a 5 years old. We were all pleasantly surprised, it is a replica of the London one, on a much smaller scale, however, the variety is extraordinary and you won't be disappointed and bonus is FREE....More

Small museum full of interesting exhibits. If I have one small criticism it is that because of the space, many of the exhibits are packed tightly together. Well laid out on several floors with a nice cafe in the basement. There is a car park...More

Stumbled across this museum, actually only a stone throw from where I live. It comprises a colossal collection of stuffed animals but nothing that is still living. Really interesting experience set over three floors. Cafe within is small but sufficient and reasonably priced.

Yes, but only 2 of them. They’re in a small display case upstairs (Gallery 2 I think it was). Hope that helps.
