Things to do at Waterworks Museum review

The Waterworks museum in Hereford has been open since the early 1970s. It is a working museum which brings the story and the history of drinking water to life.

There is a wide range of working pumps and engines which visitors can see. Children will enjoy their hands-on exhibits including the unique Heritage water park. People of all ages are encouraged to have a go playing with the historic water devices in a safe and fun environment. It’s a great way for kids to learn how things work.

The museum also has a permanent exhibition to Hereford in WWII plus many other exhibits. They also host yearly events which are advertised on their website. If you visit on a steam day there is even more to see and do, the price also increases a little.

Covid 19 – Please check the website or social media of an attraction before visiting. Many places may be open differently and some remain closed. Reviews do not mention all of these changes or possible price changes. Most places still require you to pre-book online in advance.
