The Museum at Tring will reopen to school visits from November 2021.

Bookings can be made for our on-site workshops and self-guided visits for dates between November 2021 and February 2022.

Please email us if you have any questions.

Our loan box service of themed specimens is also available to book.

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.

School visits, activities and workshops are free, but donations help support our vital work to look after nature and provide our learning programme. There is a recommended donation of £2 per child.
