All You Didn't Know About Cider

Situated in the old Bulmer Cider factory the museum gives a fascinating insight into how cider was made locally both on farms and factories. There is a small shop and cafe.

Not being in the very centre of town might make this easy to miss, but it really is inky five minutes drive from the heart of town and there is plenty of free parking so there is no excuse to miss it. The museum is very well presented and informative. The comprehensive story of the production of cider through the... More

I've been more than once and though I think the museum would benefit from more interactive and technologically updated pieces; I would definitely recommend a visit! Opportunity of tastings and excellent array of wares to take home. Easily accessible as it's located in the heart of Hereford and can't be missed by any cider lover passing by!

Always enjoy visiting this museum though if you don't know Hereford it can be a bit tricky to find.Interesting exhibits and a very good factory outlet shop selling products at very reasonable prices.

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
