This museum began as the private collection of Walter Rothschild and is now in the care of the Natural History Museum in London. In some ways it's a museum frozen in time and has a wonderfully Victorian atmosphere. There are galleries full of stuffed and mounted specimens, cases of insects where you lift a curtain to reveal the wonders inside and fishes and reptiles all over the walls. It's a brilliant place for kids of all ages and there's a shop and restaurant too. I saw the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition last time I visited and There's a temporary exhibition called Animal Record Breakers coming up this month. Best of all it won't cost you a penny to see it. Parking is on a first-come-first served basis so get there early, otherwise you can park in the pay and display spaces in Akeman Street or in the main car park off the High Street. Tring railway station is actually miles away but there's a bus.
