A magnificent Jacobean half-timbered building in the heart of Hereford City, now a wonderfully preserved house, furnished in period style.



Built in 1621 and home, in the past, to butchers, saddlers and bankers, explore the rooms which give a glimpse into daily life during the 17th Century.

You enter the Black and White House Museum through the shop, stocked with replica 17th Century goods inspired by the museum's collection. Entering the museum you discover the history of Hereford City, then follow the stairs to the first floor dining room to experience how our civil war period ancestors dined. Keep on going past the children's activity area and the stunning wall paintings to the top floor bedrooms, see the old tester bed, the baby walkers and cradles, and for the daring visitor, dress up and try out the replica beds !

The whole focus of the museum is firmly on the 17th Century and visitors can dress up and fully immerse themselves in the period.

Enjoy the hands-on activities for children and look out for special family events.
