Tring Natural History Museum is about a 45 minute drive from Marlow and a perfect place if you are fancying a trip out on a wet day. It’s linked with the Natural History Museum in London and has over 4000 fascinating stuffed animal specimens to enjoy. As you enter the museum the kids will be blown away with magnificent Polar Bears, lions, apes and zebra’s. The museum is free to enter, it is buggy friendly and also has a small cafe. You can also park for free on surrounding roads or in the museum car park. Although watch out on rainy days as it can get busy!
On route through to the museum from the car park there is a small wooded area which is ideal for a picnic on a sunny day. Our kids loved climbing the trees.
Open Monday-Saturday 10.00-17.00, Sunday 14.00-17.00
Closed 24-26 December
