Tring Success

Attendances at the Walter Rothschild Zoological Museum in Tring benefited from successful special exhibitions, excellent national and local media coverage, and the introduction of free admission. The annual total of 72,959 visits was the highest for more than a decade and 23 per cent up on the previous year.

Numbers were boosted during summer 2001 by the popular special exhibition The Bizarre, Beautiful and Rare. This brought together unusual specimens from the storerooms of The Natural History Museum. The weirder items included fleas dressed as bride and groom and two nests – one constructed from wire by house sparrows and found in an aircraft hangar, the other made by wasps in a bowler hat.
