I like this venue for its interesting interior and the simplicity of the art for sale at such reasonable prices. If you want to pick up a small momento to remind you of your visit to Ross on wye or just buy a handmade card,...More

We had a great time in the house, our daughters particularly enjoyed the hands on bits, including the dressing up. It's cheap to get in and can spend a while there.

The Black and White House Museum is situated in the centre of Hereford and is just over half a mile away from the railway station. There are three floors to negotiate to view all exhibits, via some rickety stairs so it may not be suitable...More

This small museum can be found right in the centre of Hereford & is well worth a visit. Although small it is full of interesting artifacts & documents, furniture etc which relate to times gone past in this city & the surrounding area.

Wonderful Tudor House with 3 floors to explore. Cost £7.50 for a family ticket. Kids enjoyed the dressing up.

I love this museum, it's a true gem. It's very atmospheric and gives you a real insight into what life must have been like. Well worth a visit, and it's still free to visit. A jewel in Herefors's crown

A one-time butcher's house, built 1621, this is a must-see. Only £2.50 to climb up the three floors of this Tudor home, all decorated in style of time and with a little museum downstairs. Man at ticket desk very keen and informative. Amazing to think...More

Visited with my 4 year old grandson and whilst I loved the history and authenticity he enjoyed comparing his modern life to how things were, dressing up, finishing the puzzle and climbing the stairs. Lovely staff on hand.

Pleased we visited and learned about the building. The guide talked us through using the 3D map model which was very interesting. A fine example of a fairly wealthy home.

I think it's about £2.50, certainly not a lot compared to other attractions and good value for money.
