Hard to say anything positive. Old exhibits, a video on cider making and it wasn't even based in Herefordshire, but Somerset. Sound quality was awful. It's boring, and you get a thimble full of cider and a thimble full of apple juice at the end as your tasting. It has a sense of just waiting to be closed down and... More

We spent an afternoon touring the Cider Museum. It was an experience as well as an education in the making of cider. It is well worth the time visiting the museum. I didn't realize that there is quite a process in the making of cider. At the end of our tour, we were given a taste of two different types... More

Excellent selection of resources and reasonably priced to get into makes it a good visit for anyone. Thoughtfully arranged displays, lots for adults to read; not so suitable for younger children but then cider is for grown ups anyway! Great choice of unusual ciders in the shop on exit. Best bit has to be the basement with the bottle racks,... More

This museum was interesting but not really our cup of tea. Very small and self guided but did have some interesting bits and pieces. I think I attended with the wrong expectation having been to many other alcohol museums/ distilleries. I think we were expecting to be able to sample some cider but there wasn't any to taste. I'm sure... More

This is a very interesting place to visit, it tells the history of cider making in Herefordshire. It has hands on aspects,and there is a good tour in the museum,THAT shows from field to barrel,the methods of making cider. There is a cafe and a shop,where you can purchase various types of product.

This museum tells the story of Bulmer's cider makers, and also gives information on the making of cider in general. It is a self-guided museum and includes a mix of static and audio-visual displays. At the end you get to taste a number of local ciders.

We enjoyed our visit to the cider museum, we spent about an hour looking at the exhibits which overall were interesting but a couple of things could be updated and made more interactive. Also there should have been more information about the modern day cider industry in the local area, as the video was about cider making in Somerset. The... More
