There are some interesting things to see in this quite small museum and if you are a cider freak you will appreciate that. But in general I think the place is rather average and abit dissappointing

Great way to spend a few hours learning the history of cider making in Hereford. Very informative staff, good exhibits and two floors of displays and video presentations, followed by tasting session at the end. Good tearoom and gift shop as well.
