Book a free ticket for guaranteed entry. Tickets for half-term from 23-31 October are sold out and we expect walk-up entry to be limited.
To help keep everyone safe, a timed entry system is in place. Only a limited number of people are allowed in our galleries.
Tickets are currently available for visits up to 31 March 2022.
Members, Patrons and Corporate Supporters do not need to book general admission or exhibition tickets. Arrive at any time and you will have priority access. The option to book is still available if you prefer for Members and Corporate Supporters.
We cannot guarantee entry if you do not have a pre-booked ticket. You may need to wait in a long queue or staff may ask you to return later when spaces become available. Please speak to staff on arrival for the latest queue information.

The Natural History Museum at Tring, Hertfordshire is open
We are open!
Entry to the Museum remains free, but since we closed our doors we've been losing vital income. Donations will help us to continue welcoming visitors and connecting people to nature through inspiring stories and educational activities.
So if you could help us with a donation - no matter the size - we'd greatly appreciate it. Thank you.
