    Tring Natural History Museum Animal Exhibit

    Natural History Museum at Tring

    (Tring 21 miles from Marlow)

    An offshoot of the Natural History Museum in London – meaning entry is FREE – it is based on the collection of Lionel Rothschild, and first opened in 1892. It retains its unique Victorian character, including the original floor-to-ceiling, glass-fronted hardwood and iron cases. The 4,000 animal specimens on public display are still classified into related groups, just as they were in Walter’s lifetime.
