The Natural History Museum at Tring is one of the finest collections of stuffed mammals, birds, reptiles and insects in the UK. It includes examples of several animals now extinct, and a model of a dodo! The collection was given to the nation by Walter Rothschild on his death in 1937. It is now part of the Natural History Museum.

The museum houses Darwin's Finches - the collection of these birds that Charles Darwin brought back from the Galapagos Islands on his voyage in HMS Beagle, and which informed his theories of Natural Selection. (The finches are not on show to the public but they are still much studied by naturalists today.)

The museum is on the corner of Akeman Street and Park Road, a quarter of a mile south of the crossroads in the centre of the town. It has a carpark. Open daily.
