The Tring Local History Museum is VERY small (just one room) but is very good. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The children’s treasure pit was fun – even more fun for getting a sticker for finding 6 objects. This museum would not be worth...More

A really interesting little museum charting the history of this lovely town. Lots for children to get involved with and plenty of interest for the biggies too. The volunteers are a great bunch who are eager to chat and involve you. Well worth popping in.

If you have any American visitors I can certainly recommend Tring Local History Museum. They will be especially interested in the association between The Washington Family and Tring. They can also buy a superb book on the subject.

If you only want half hour to visit a museum, this is the one. Very informative and easy to read all the exhibits, gives all the local history of the place. Free but they rely on donations.
