This visit was far more appealing than we had anticipated. Although he exhibits were, to our minds, a little confused, there was much to be absorbed; metaphorically that is – no free samples! We had no idea that there are so many varieties of apple, so many types of cider and so many different processes involved. The videos were well... More

It was a very interesting experience. From the apple to the bottle I did not realise just how much goes into making cider. It was also interesting to go back in time and look at an old Hereford Manufacturer of a very fine product.

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. The basement contains... More

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
