Broad Street
View location

Hereford Museum and Art Gallery is housed in a spectacular, richly carved Anglicised Venetian Gothic building. The museum and gallery is the home for displays and exhibitions of the Hereford Collection as well as the work of local artists, students, and craftspeople.  There is also the  popular Hatton Gallery (a display of works by the promising young artist, Brian Hatton, who died in the First World War before he could achieve the recognition his skill merited)

We regularly feature touring exhibitions and objects loaned from other collections.

The exhibitions begin in the foyer of the building with a small display in the foyer case.

Don't miss the beautiful Kenchester mosaic on your way upstairs. The museum is full of interesting local history with hands-on elements for all the family.

Around the walls of the museum is a timeline created by wood engraver Harry Brockway. This sets out the major periods of history and depicts local events, places or museum objects. The exhibits themselves are then ordered according to both the historical era to which they belong and to one of four main themes - Herefordshire as a cultural county, a productive county, a natural county and a border county. Exhibits include a hive of live bees, a two-headed calf, a two metre long fish, elements of costume and textiles and much more besides.
