School and group visits

The Museum at Tring has reopened to the general public. 

However, due to Health and Safety guidelines we are unable to welcome back large group visits, including school groups, until further notice. This is for both self-guided visits and booked workshops and shows.

We are currently working on a plan for school visits to return, as well as exciting opportunities for us to connect with you digitally in school. Please email if you have any questions.

We look forward to welcoming you and your students back as soon as we can. If you'd like to sign up to our Tring Teachers' newsletter to be the first to hear when school bookings re-open, please email

Inspire your students to ponder their place within the natural world and explore the variety of life.

Our hands-on workshops and gallery activities are closely tied to the National Curriculum. We recommend booking at least a month in advance.
