Construction techniques used in these old black and white buildings, the family life of a merchant, toys - all were touched on in the museums displays. Interesting place to wander round without being too large to take it all in!

This is like going back in time. Absolutely beautiful if you like old black and white houses. Situated in the centre of Hereford it's a testament to our past. Not very accessible for the less able as being an historic building there wouldn't be much manoeuvrability. Old crooked stairs etc.

The Old House images a peaceful and festive lull from shopping in HiTown Hereford where market day is Thursday. Take the family they will love it!

A genuine tudor timbered house, preserved in great detail, free to enter and fascinating to explore inside, wonky floors, wall painting preserved, and period furniture give you a real feel of the old place as it must have been, a great little freebie on a wet day in Hereford.

This old wonky building is preserved and run by the local council. It’s free entry and must be worth anyone’s time to have look at what housing for a (presumably) wealthy merchant was like back in the 1600’s. Particularly amazed by the amount of light in the bedroom upstairs as we understand glass was a real status symbol back then.... More

I loved this place. It is a 16th century house set up to be more or less as it was when new.It has old furniture, old paintings, old pots & pans, beds, plates and such like. You are free to wander about and have a look just as if visiting somebody's house. Great.

We came across this amazing building in the middle of a modern town centre by surprise. The kids loved climbing all the stairs and seeing all the great artefacts, many of which they could touch and there were lots of interactive things for them to do. The whole house is a real treasure trove of 'things' and the volunteers there... More

A small museum in the city centre with a range of period furniture and household objects. An interesting way to pass an hour or so.
