An excellent museum, with a large number of water pumps and other equipment to provide our clean water. I particularly enjoyed the working machinery and the exhibition about water treatment, which must be the most important public health measure of all time! The staff were really nice and friendly and there was an additional exhibition of Hereford at war which was well done. The Cafe was a pleasant place for something to eat afterwards.

Could be great - but not very well organised. Staff seemed quite confused and nothing actually ready for the opening even though it’s only one day a week! Impressive machines.

Thank you for your review. It is a concern to the Volunteers at the Waterworks Museum when a visitor leaves us disappointed. The Museum re-opened in July 2021 after a period of closure of 15 months. Since then, we have been working to a new operational model whilst we implement a major programme of recruitment and training to build our team of volunteers back to the strength it was pre-pandemic. This exercise is ongoing. We are all volunteers at the Waterworks Museum, which is why the Museum can only open one day a week.

Although I had been to Hereford many times over the years, I had never made it to the Waterworks Museum - until last week. It was fairly easy to find with plenty of parking. If I had had more time, I would have walked across to the river or looked at the model railway set up nearby.

I enjoyed looking around the displays and learning more about the pumping and cleaning of water locally. There was a vast selection of engines and I will return on a "steam" day. The highlight was talking to the volunteer engineers working on site. One described his time there as "very good for my mental health". I also had some cake and a cup of tea at the cafe.

Once outside the main building, I found the displays on Rotherwas very interesting, with their emphasis on women during the war. I did not have chance to look at the outdoor area for children.

On speaking to my dad, he remembered fitting the gas for some of the displays (when he worked for British Gas) so he will be visiting tomorrow!

I have been visiting this wonderful museum for around twenty years, and my latest visit on 4th July, accomanied by daughter and granddaughters, was truly excellent. There really is something for everyone, of all ages and all interests, especially when the museum is "in steam". For me, as a retired engineer, it is great to see and study the restored machinery running in the capable hands of the dedicated volunteers, but for kids and grandkids there's also plenty to see and do, including some excellent working models and demonstrations. The outdoor Water Park with its stirrup pumps (squirt Grandad!) water buckets, hand-wheels and all sorts of other attractions is a big draw for the younger visitors. The volunteers who staff the museum could not have been kinder or more helpful, and are to be complimented for the high standards throughout. All the facilities (cafe, toilets etc) are spotless and the whole day was a great success. As Arnold once said... "I'll be back!"

Thank you for your kind review. It was especially appreciated as 4 July 2021 was our first Working Day with engines operating since the Museum closed in response to the Covid pandemic in March 2020. It was also a first day of working for many volunteers on site who had joined our team when the Museum was ready to re-open.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. Sunday 27 October was an extraordinary day, with the highest level of flooding seen at the Waterworks Museum in over 25 years. This meant we could not steam-up as advertised, which is why a decision was taken for free admission. We are pleased that, nonetheless, you enjoyed your visit and would consider a return on another occasion. Our Calendar of open-days for 2020 will be published in December.

Waterworks Museum in Hereford is not dull and is a great venue for a family outing!
Water is a finite resource and most people do not give it a second thought until it does not flow out of the tap! An outing to the Waterworks Museum Hereford on the banks of the River Wye dispels such thoughts. Visitors follow the route of water abstracted from the river and then follow its path through cleaning and disinfecting and on to delivery to consumers. This process involves a great deal of expertise and equipment and it needs to work 24/7. The fun park includes the unexpected catering for young family members who can learn by playing with all manner of devices that squirt and run. There are light refreshments too. An astonishing feature is the fact that the entire sophisticated operation is run 100% by volunteers with no Government subsidies and no salaries to the volunteers. (As a retired engineer I spent longer than many other visitors) They have an excellent website too!

Thank you for your kind review and for highlighting that our Museum is run wholly by volunteers. This is a point that is not always appreciated by our visitors.

We visited the Waterworks Museum on an In Steam day today and what a treat it was. We have two young children and they thoroughly enjoyed watching the engines in motion and some hands on activities too. Luckily we had some dry spells so could go on the water activities outside. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming especially engaging our two young boys! We would definitely return to this hidden gem! We only live 10 minutes away but have never visited, we would definitely return! Would recommend to anyone. Thank you!

This is a great place to visit particularly if from an engineering background. There are many exhibits of pumps and engines from bygone ages. If you can plan your visit to when steam is raised so much the better as the big beam water pumps are operational.

This is a site well worth the visit, lots of working exhibits and volunteers eager to explain. We went on a weekday so engines weren’t in steam ( they have special days on Bank holidays etc. ) but still plenty of motion and work being done. I wish I lived closer to this venue as I would be down there every day helping out restoring the many pumps and engines.
There’s a lovely picnic spot at the overflow car back behind the museum with tables and seats.
