Half Term Family Fun & Games

Visit The Waterworks Museum during the May school holidays for our half term family fun & games.

Activities for children in the Heritage Water Park: suitable for ages 5-11 (younger visitors with parental support). If raining on the day, alternative indoor activities will be available.

Not in steam days are every Tuesday so whatever your reasons for visiting the Waterworks Museum – Hereford, there is so much more to see than just big engines and industrial heritage.

Whatever the weather, we have something to offer all visitors including family groups with children.

The Waterworks Museum traces the history of drinking water from the cave-dwellers up to the present day through wonderful working engines, superb display panels, guidebooks and films and the knowledge shared by the Museum’s volunteers. Classified by English Heritage as “a site of clear national importance”, the Museum is home to the oldest working triple-expansion steam engine in the UK and probably has the widest range of working pumps and engines.

The Noel Meeke Heritage Water Park is unique in the UK and is aimed primarily at young people but ALL visitors are encouraged to enter and have a go with the historic water devices. Here visitors can interact with full-size devices for lifting, pumping, moving and filtering water which have been used down the generations. In a totally safe environment children can have immense fun and learn at the same time the difficulties of obtaining water in days gone by.
