Attraction Information

At the family friendly Hereford Museum and Art Gallery, some of the cooler exhibits include a hive of live bees, a two headed calf, a two metre long fish, historic costumes and swords of every shape and size! We are talking some seriously interesting stuff!

It's housed in a spectacular Victorian gothic building, has been exhibiting artefacts and works of fine and decorative art connected with the local area since 1874. Although the exterior of the building has changed very little the museum and gallery have kept up with the times and offer a series of hands on elements and a relaxed atmosphere designed to encourage kids to be comfortable and let their minds wander freely!

The exhibitions begin in the foyer of the building with a regularly changing small display in the foyer case, adding something new to repeat visits. Don't miss the Kenchester mosaic on your way upstairs (and be prepared for small voiced demands to make a mosaic later!) and the changing art exhibitions emblazoned on the stairwell walls. The museum is full of interesting local history with hands-on elements for all the family and will keep curious folks absolutely fascinated!
