Called in here on a rainy afternoon. Amazed by how much they have in this house. Built 1621 and furnished for around that time or a little later. Boards in the rooms (3 floors) explaining what you're seeing.

The museum is small but well worth a visit. There are some original pieces of furniture from the time of the civil war along with some re-creations. Personally my favourite part was the original wall coverings of the muses and the in situ original wall...More

By 'museum' standards not large - but full of very interesting artefacts. Have a look at the centuries old children's walking aid - before McLaren buggies were invented! And much more.

I almost stumbled across this museum by accident and I was glad I did! It is well presented and is a fascinating insight into domestic life in the 17th Century.

It had been a few years since I was last in Hereford, and I had heard that the Old House had undergone renovation since my previous visit. Indeed, it is no longer free entry and is now £2.50 for an adult entry. The building itself...More

As another reviewer has said, this very old building is unsuitable for those with reduced mobility because of steep staircases etc. It is not in fact free to enter but the price is reasonable: £2.50 for an adult. The location map was incorrectly showing Hay-on-Wye,...More
