  • It is a museum on the second floor of the Cathedral near the library. Shop floor mosaics of the Roman hung on the wall of the stairs. It was exhibited the new excavated from the city (leather sandals).

  • I had been warned that this museum was poor, but since it is free entry I decided to visit on today's day trip to Hereford. I am sorry to say that this is amongst the worst museums I have ever visited...  more »
  • I try and visit the Gallery every month to see what new works are in the exhibition space and it's usually quite interesting, but the gallery is way too small. I also feel that sometimes I'm intruding...  more »

  • Nice. The Hereford Museum and Art Gallery is a local museum in the center of the city Hereford. You can find it in a Victorian gothic building. It was opened as a free library and museum on 8 October 1874 and has since exhibited artefacts, fine art, and decorative art associated with the local area. There are regular temporary exhibitions of craftwork, paintings, photography, and prints. Having closed temporarily for building repairs in September 2015, the Hereford Museum and Art Gallery re-opened for the summer months in July 2017. As of July 2017, exhibits in the museum include a two-headed calf, a two-metre long fish, swords of every shape and size, elements of costume and textiles, as well as objects of historic, social and scientific interest dating back from the pre-historic era up to the 20th century. The gallery currently boasts over 80 works by Brian Hatton, as well as many of his materials and selected letters.
  • Needs updating and expanding!
  • This remains a local favourite despite removing the Scold's Bridle and putting it into storage, along with many other 'folk' items.
