A small museum, but very interesting. My small ones were kept amuses. It doesn't take long to get round, so don't make a day of it. Friendly staff and nice cider shop. Great for us as we are cider fans.

We visited here on a Monday afternoon in half term and we were the only people in the whole building! There is a lot to see about cider production, I don't think there is anything to interest children though. The shop was really good though and I picked up many goodies.

How this museum survives, I do not know - so get your visit in before the financial realities of modern life make the 'trust' who run it, give in. It cleverly pitches both at children and adults: the cellar 'works' are fascinating, and some of us can remember working in places like that in our youth. Take time to visit... More

My other half and I found this very interesting and informative. All the displays were well labelled and the history of how the Bulmer family started in cider making was fascinating. There was even a bottle label from a local cider maker to where we live - Hancock's of Clatworthy Mill, South Molton, Devon - alas sadly now no longer... More

This was an informative and interesting museum. I learned a lot not only about the history of cider making in Herefordshire, but also about how cider is made in general. It's set up in an old cider factory so you get to see exactly how the process worked. Also there is a little gift shop where you can sample and... More

You don't need to be a cider drinker to enjoy this museum but there are free samples at the end of the tour if you wish to partake. We spent a good couple of hours learning all about the history and evolution of cider making from plenty of written and photographic wall charts and videos etc. There is also a... More

WOW - what a lovely Cider Museum. This is a very well thought out and put together museum - I didnt realise that it was the actual place that they made the cider back in the early years. Fantastic history lesson and I did learn a lot of things. I would encourage anyone who hasnt been to definitely go. Its... More
