Visitors can see the UK’s widest range of working pumps and engines from across Herefordshire, neighbouring counties and Wales, most of which are the last working examples of their type. Heritage engineering at its best – and wholly run by volunteers.
The museum is one of Herefordshire’s leading visitor attractions with something for all ages. Children enjoy using hands on exhibits, including in the unique Heritage Water Park, and the museum has a permanent exhibition to Hereford in WW2. Every exhibit is waiting to tell a story.
Thanks to your membership, we’re able to protect this special place for ever, for everyone.
We firmly believe that a good museum has to offer something and be welcoming for all the family, not just the grown-ups, so we are delighted to be a signatory to the Kids in Museums Manifesto .
Our new outdoor exhibition space, the Noel Meeke Heritage Water Park, was designed specially to attract visits by family groups.
Don’t miss our children’s activity days.
Free Entry For Under 16’s
A typical visitor will spend between one to two hours at the Waterworks Museum – Hereford, and perhaps longer on the days when the Museum is operating in steam.
For this reason, visitors often combine a visit to the Museum with a visit to one of Hereford’s other major attractions, most notably the impressive Hereford Cathedral and its Chained Library, Mappa Mundi and Magna Carta.
