“Great small museum”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

Little museum on edge of car park. Did not have much time for the full museum experience, but found this museum gave us an insight into the history of Tring. Much more discovered than just a village we passed through.

“Small town - BIG history !”
Reviewed 5 August 2013

I have lived in the small market town of Tring since 1985 and the Local History Museum is the best new addition to the town in all that time. Compact in size, it contains a wealth of local knowledge & information surrounding the town's formation & makeup. A lot of this is due to the Rothschild family in more recent centuries, but the museum digs deeper than that. The volunteer staff are most helpful & friendly. Entry is FREE.There is a pay car park nearby. Note : The building is only normally open Friday/Saturday/Sunday so it is worth combining with a visit to the nearby larger Natural History Museum. Enjoy.
