Planning Your Visit

PLANNING YOUR VISIT

The volunteers at the Waterworks Museum want you to enjoy your visit and the following information is provided to help you plan.

First off, please remember the Waterworks Museum is only routinely open one day a week – every Tuesday. We don’t want your visit to be frustrated by finding our gate locked. Details of our family open days when all engines and pumps can be seen working can be found in What’s On. There are 20 of these days, Sundays and Bank Holidays, each year.

Our Accessibility Guide(s) provide information for visitors who may need some assistance to fully enjoy the Museum’s collection and facilities.

You might also like to learn a little more about Hereford and other attractions close to the Waterworks Museum to plan a full day for the whole family to enjoy.

If you have any questions before visiting the Waterworks Museum please email: info@waterworksmuseum.org.uk or telephone 01432 357 236.
