Well worth a couple of hours to understand both the cider making process and the history of the industry in Hereford. Free parking and a good audio visual display plus a walk through the cider making process. Even got me drinking cider again!

First of all this is not the easiest place to find and by no means easy to walk from the city centre. This is not helped by the fact that there appears to be absolutely no tourist information in Hereford. We visited on a saturday in july and when we entered the place was in semi-darkness. The two ladies at... More

Honestly, didn't particularly want to go to this but was really pleasantly surprised. It's a self-guided tour but was really fun and there was lots to see. "Tasting" at the end of the tour could be a bit better with more info about the cider that's offered but overall glad we went.

This museum tells the story of Bulmers cider making. Through the years. It makes an interesting couple of hours.

Surprised at the consistently positive reviews having visited. Found it very outdated - exhibits etc. Sorry but sadly would not recommend to others.

Spend a couple of hours reading and wandering around the museum to find out how cider used to be made before mechanisation and the progress to the modern day. After your visit taste a few of the many types of cider.

A great little museum tucked away in the backstreets of Hereford - well worth a visit. Fascinating exhibits, hands on stuff, lovely volunteers - a perfect wet day visit - and a simple cafe. Great !

This was an impromptu visit with friends and so glad we went! Staff very welcoming and helpful. I was under the misapprehension that Somerset was the cider making county and during our visit discovered all the famous brands appear to be from Herefordshire! Very interesting and informative visit with interactive things for children. I thoroughly enjoyed it with a complementary... More

On a day trip to Hereford with friends and spotted the signs for the Cider Museum and so pleased we did. Our reception was very welcoming and we were surprised how large the building was. The experience was very interesting to see, both via video link to the huge vats in the cellars. There is also continual information to be... More

A rather dull Wednesday completely livened up by visiting this museum. We couldn't understand why we were the only people there. A real eye-opener as we hadn't appreciated the range of ciders and perrys, nor how different they all are. Visuals are excellent, with interviews with those who'd worked there. The whole lot finished off by a cider tasting at... More
