This is a small museum in the centre of Hereford town. Interesting displays over three floors with some sections which allow hands on experience. Good insight on the history of the area and living in days gone by. Reasonably priced.

We had a great time in the house, our daughters particularly enjoyed the hands on bits, including the dressing up. It's cheap to get in and can spend a while there.

This small museum can be found right in the centre of Hereford & is well worth a visit. Although small it is full of interesting artifacts & documents, furniture etc which relate to times gone past in this city & the surrounding area.

I love this museum, it's a true gem. It's very atmospheric and gives you a real insight into what life must have been like. Well worth a visit, and it's still free to visit. A jewel in Herefors's crown

I think it's about £2.50, certainly not a lot compared to other attractions and good value for money.
