A lovely museum to visit, really well done out. Only £2.50 to have a look around, really worth it. Stairs to go up although very good flights and the floors very good for such an old building. Lots of history and recreated rooms.

A small well laid out visit. Easy to see, no queuing. Not too long to view the whole venue. A good overview of Hereford history. Recommended. It is free.

We haven't visited a museum quite like this. A lucky survivor from a terrace of Jacobean merchant houses, this has some interesting artefacts We received a pleasant welcome, the curator gave us a broad outline of the history and we were then free to wander....More

Wandering round Hereford we stumbled across this place and sheltered from the rain! Glad we did. Three storeys of museum, accessible displays and things for children,such as dressing up. Really cheap too!

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