“Well overpriced!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

This would be a great museum if it was about a third of the price. I took my 3 kids in and it cost over £20 - we had a good look at everything, but it's basically set in a shop basement, so not very big, and we were out again in about 20 minutes!

Do yourself a favour - save the entry fee and buy a boxed set of Dr Who DVDs instead.

“Disappointing, too expensive and not enough of it!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012 via mobile

Disappointing, it has some nice stuff to see but is only for die hard fans. It's very small and is very cramped and it left us saying where in the rest of it (and the visitors before us!) it would be nice to be able to get photos with stuff like daleks but everything is behind bars or glass. The £8 charge is ridiculous for what takes about 30 mins, but i am guessing that is reflective on it being in the middle of nowhere with no passing visitors. If this was in central Hereford or Worcester with more space charging £3 a time then I am certain it would get lots of visitors and visitors happy at the price.

“Value depends on your interest”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

If your interest is Dr. Who, then this is the place for you. It is a bit on the pricey side for what it is, which is a basement with a Dalek, a Cyberman and similar items, but is worth a visit if you happen to be in the area.

It's a private museum, so there's naturally a fee.

There appears to be an ongoing battle between the proprietor and Flowerdew's next door, with both proprietors complaining about the other including some kind of legal action, apparently. We visited both and the atmosphere was not a good one. The comments were made without any prior knowledge or prompting from us, except general conversation about Bromyard being a nice place to live.

Don't drink the coffee, it's rather bitter - I don't know what they do with it!

There are no lifts and the only access is via a rather steep set of stairs.

“gem to stumble on”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

great exhibits, love the doctor who items especially and the relaxed atmosphere of the place as we were told we were welcome to take pictures and left to wander without feeling like we were being watched...little bit pricey but as there probably are not a lot of viewers they have overheads to meet keeping it going...it would be a shame if it was lost to the place as theres not much else of attraction in the town centre

“A thoroughly enjoyable experience for the whole Family!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

Wow!! This is our second visit to this fabulous place .It is really something very special, IT'S AWESOME! And as my 14 year old son said " This place is COOL !" There are loads of actual props and costume from Dr Who as well as other shows we enjoy such as RED DWARF and THUNDERBIRDS the staff are really friendly and knowledgeable too and it's a very friendly place to go.
DR WHO takes up about 80 percent of the total Museum and there are exhibits from the classic series as well as modern Dr Who exhibits from the David Tennant and Matt Smith eras.
VERY VERY IMPRESSIVE COLLECTION OF GENUINE PROPS AND COSTUME- WE WILL VISIT AGAIN next time we are in Bromyard
If you are into Dr Who DON'T miss this !!
