Ornithology and Rothschild collections

The magnificent Ornithology collection is housed at the Natural History Museum at Tring, and contains material dating back to the 16th century.

Based on material bequested by Lionel Walter Rothschild (1868-1937), the collection includes original artwork by John Gerrard Keulemans (1842-1912), Frederick William Frohawk (1861-1946) and Henrik Grönvold (1858-1940).

It also contains general natural history books and a large ‘travel’ section documenting major voyages of discovery throughout history.
