Refurbished Rothschild Room, the Natural History Museum at Tring

The newly-refurbished Rothschild Room at the Natural History Museum at Tring showcases key stories and specimens from the life and collection of Museum founder Walter Rothschild.

Here, you can explore an interactive map featuring the daring explorations of Walter's specimen collectors, flip through digital photo albums featuring Walter, his family and his menagerie of live animals, and see mounted examples of some of Walter's favourite birds. The Rothschild Room illustrates how Walter's interest in natural history, his foresight and generosity, preserved an astonishing collection for the nation.

The re-development of the Rothschild Room has been made possible through a grant from the DCMS/Wolfson Museums and Galleries Improvement Fund.
