Plan your visit
Even if you've visited the Museum before and have seen the highlights, there's still plenty to discover. This tour guides you through some of the Museum's lesser-known treasures and is great for all ages.
Sir David Attenborough's unmistakable voice and expertise on all things nature make him the perfect person to take you on an audio guided tour of Hintze Hall's star specimens.
Roaming the galleries can be exhausting stuff, so why not rest and refuel in one of our cafes? There's a selection of fresh food and hot and cold drinks available. Browse the shops for dinosaur- and other nature-inspired gifts. Some of our cafes and shops are temporarily closed.
You're in for a warm welcome at Tring. Find out how to plan your visit, including booking your free entry tickets, safety information and how to get there.
