Two extremely helpful young men were manning the desk. The exhibits were of excellent quality, and the information boards ideal. Got completely lost in time. Really good value at £3.50. Felt I had really stepped back in time in the lovely atmosphere of the House

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.

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