Attraction Information

Enjoy its authentic Victorian atmosphere alongside modern facilities and services.2015 welcomes Coral Reefs: Secret Cities of the Sea!

Visit the galleries and come face to face with a full-sized gorilla, a huge anaconda or an extinct giant moa, just a few of the 4,000 animals on display!

There are two outdoor picnic areas, one close to the Museum building and the other a short walk away, across Park Street. They offer a chance to relax in fresh air and enjoy wonderful views of chalk and meadow downlands, typical of the Chiltern foothills around Tring. Open every day!
