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

I once visited this museum around thirty years ago when Bulmers was on the same site. I enjoyed my tour equally as an adult as much as I did back then. You don’t have to be a cider drinker to appreciate this attraction as they touch upon so many different aspects of the apple and what can be done with... More

It was very interesting to find out about the history of cider in the area, although we did question a bit about the "perry" cider as we were told different here to what we were told in another cider place...!

Enjoyed the visit and found it very informative. While in the cellar area you can imagine yourself in a cider factory in the 1950's.

I don't like cider but went on the tour with my husband. I have to say it was well worth the £5 entrance money. I learned so much of the history and processes of cider making. We went on a quiet day which meant we could wander at our own pace, as there was so much information to digest and... More

£5.50 pp gets you an accompanied tour of a cider-works. The only staff we saw was the lovely lady on the reception, everything else was shown on video and audio loops. There was lots of interesting exhibits and we actually spent far longer here than I would ever have thought we would. There is a cafe by the reception, although... More
