Meeting the Animals Again at Tring Museum

Thursday, 14 January 2016

It has been a while since our last visit to Tring Museum but we decided to visit again today as we woke up to a cold, damp start to the day so decided against a family walk!

No matter how many times you visit, you always see something new. It's a fascinating collection. It's always interesting to see which animals Little Miss A is most interested in. This time it was finding the peacock and looking at the zebras.

There was a new display in the Rothschild Room which had a giant tortoise sculpture. You are actively encourage to sit on it and take a photo to re-enact a photo of Rothschild himself riding on the back of one!





We arrived late morning and it was very busy with a school party. There were a few other visitors, but mostly the school girls. However, they were all very polite and found Little Miss A very cute when she sat down with them to join in with their drawing!













We spent a lot of time going up and down between the floors. sometimes via the stairs, sometimes in the lift. Little Miss A led the way and we followed!

It was funny capturing her encounter with the big gorilla. She's changed so much since her encounter with him in November 2014!









We really are lucky to have this Museum so close to where we live and that it's free entry (donations welcome). It's great for a visit on a day like today. And of course if you want to make a day of it, then you can always take a walk to see the wooden animal sculptures in Tring Park - highly recommended!

    1. I know what you mean! Definitely worth another visit. It's great for kids to see such a variety of animals - large and small!
