The Museum collections
These are under custody of Herefordshire Council and include over 180,000 pieces of historic interest. Some are kept on display at Museum and Art Gallery above the Library in Broad Street, or at the Black and White House in High Town, Hereford. But the majority are held in optimised conditions at the Museum Resources and Learning Centre in Friar Street, Hereford.
The Museum Staff
The museum staff have vital professional and specialist skills to care for the collections, and interpret them. They prepare exhibitions and events to appeal to a wide range of interests. In particular they support learning programmes for school children.
