Tring Museum will open for one night only for Science Uncovered

For one night only this year, the Natural History Museum at Tring opens its doors for Science Uncovered, a free event for adults aimed at unravelling some of the mysteries around rare specimens.

The annual after hours science extravaganza takes place on Friday September 26 from 6pm until 10pm.

It gives visitors the chance to meet the museum’s world leading scientists, discover the weird and wonderful world of Walter Rothschild’s zoological collection, and enjoy a drink with friends in the museum after dark.

You’ll be able to chat with the scientists and discover the important work that goes on behind the scenes every day, including research on one of the largest bird collections in the world.

On show will be rare specimens that are not usually on public display.

A spokesman said: “Our curators and researchers will be on hand to unravel some of the mysteries surrounding these specimens, highlighting how they are contributing to vital research today.”

Following the success of last year’s event, this year’s Science Uncovered will be even bigger. Alongside tours, talks and science stations at the museum, there will also be talks and presentations streamed live from the Science Uncovered event at the Natural History Museum in London.
