Walter himself was a remarkable character. As well as collecting many thousands of mounted animals, he kept an astonishing variety of live animals in the grounds around the Museum and in Tring Park. He even used zebras to draw his carriage - take a look at the slideshow above.
Education. Our workshops, activity sheets and guidance for teachers are tied closely to the National Curriculum and make education fun for everyone. If you are leading a school group, you can use our information sheets to run self-guided tours. There are also specific events for families.
Children can ponder their own place within the natural world through hands-on interactives in the Discovery Room.
The beautiful wildlife meadow is the perfect environment to explore the local flora and fauna. You can eat your packed lunch here or in the indoor and outdoor picnic areas or why not pop into the Zebra Cafe next to the museum car park.
