National History Museum-Tring

It’s FREE and INDOORS 😂🌧💧 (We visited in 2019)

The museum itself is free and buggy/wheelchair accessible. It’s in a lovely old building and is basically just full of stuffed animals, every one you can think of, even some extinct ones. Very good for children (and adults) to get the true scale of things. The children loved it (6, 4 and 1) I was slightly freaked out I have to admit. It’s small ish , over 3 floors, the perfect size for small children. I was there alone with 3 children and it was an easy place to hang out without worrying about loosing one of them 🙈

There is also a little natural play area just across the lane, my children played climbing trees and building dens for ages! There is a nice picnic area and also a museum cafe, however it is currently ungoing a refurb (July '23) Afterwards we met family and went for a walk in Tring Park (wild park not a playground/ Path type park) you have to cross an A road over bridge but managed with a pram and it’s a great wild park with cows roaming, meadows etc. We then walked back and found a lovely Farm shop tea room in Tring.

Free parking right next to the building but it was full so I just drove down the road to the car park on the high street and it was free for an hour or £1.50 for 4 hrs. Bargain. However I later discovered there was ANOTHER free car park at the museum just past the building towards the fields.🤦‍♀️
