The Hertfordshire museum has been part of the Natural History Museum since 1937 and its remarkable collections were once the private passion of its founder, Lionel Walter, second Baron Rothschild. Now more than 100,000 visitors a year experience the fascinating world of a Victorian collector, where they can see a huge variety of wild, weird and wonderful specimens from across the animal kingdom – from the extinct quagga to dressed fleas.
