A well thought out use of a samll space that tells a great tale really well. Good little shop and the volunteers are superb. Many thanks for this special place. All local museums should visit here and see how it is done.

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.

It is a small museum,but packed with local photos and artefacts from the town and surrounding area. Check the opening hours as they are limited.
