I had found this Museum online when looking for places to visit. We found it both interesting and well laid out. Good value for money, and the staff friendly & helpful. If you have ever wondered how the making of cider as changed over the years this place has all the answers.Well worth a visit.

Following our visit to the cathedral etc., we decided to explore a bit further in Hereford and followed the tourist signs to the Cider Museum. This is to be found on the site of the Bulmers cider factory and contains many historical artifacts set out in a 'living museum' style showroom on the ground and first floors.

We went when there was a cider festival on so I think that made it more interesting. I enjoyed it and thought the film and voice overs descriving working at Bulmers were good. The history of the Bulmer family was also enjoyable. I thought it well worth a visit.

My fiancée and I visited here just to waste a bit of time until we had to leave for home. It was ok, nothing amazing, but it was quite interesting. We bought some pear cider and some nice apple juice. I wouldn't bother going back though.

Ok this is a small museum and can be quiet off peak but there was plenty to engage both a young child and a retiree who came with me. Lots to both remember about cider of your youth as well as plenty of quirky exhibits. I finally found out that the old stoppers from Bulmers were made from something called... More

I don't see where all the excellent reviews come from. We found the Cider Museum in Hereford a huge disappointment. I'm not complaining about the £ 5.50 per person, but there was simply nothing to see -- at least if you're interested in the actual process of cider making. In fact, there were a couple of displays (which could be... More

Very informative, not busy so plenty of time to linger and look. No tour guide, so very informal which was nice. Tasted the cider and some liqueur, so good we had to buy. Friendly staff too, always a bonus
