Share your memories of Tring with us this Saturday

17 June 2014

Celebrate Museum History Day at the Natural History Museum at Tring on 21 June and help us piece together more of our unique history.

It began as the personal hobby of Lionel Walter, 2nd Baron Rothschild, and was donated to the nation in 1937. 

The collection of the Natural History Museum at Tring, as it was renamed in 2007, now comprises an extraordinary array of birds, dogs, insects, kangaroos and bats, all in keeping with the legacy of its inspirational founder. 

This Saturday 21 June, we're celebrating that remarkable history in a series of activities and events, including an historical town walk, special displays from the bird collection and Rothschild library and a slideshow of lantern images of the Museum and Tring from the 1930s.

We're also asking visitors to bring us their memories of the Museum and the people who worked there to help add even more colour to our history and identify people and place in old photos.

Following our special grant award of £76,000, plans to redevelop the Rothschild Room are going well and will be announced soon. 

Come and celebrate the Museum and contribute to its remarkable ongoing legacy.
