5607145Hereford Museum & Art Gallery
DateTuesday 1st January 2019 to Tuesday 31st December 2019
DescriptionHereford Museum and Art Gallery, housed in a spectacular Victorian gothic building, has been exhibiting artefacts and works of fine and decorative art connected with the local area since 1874. Although the exterior of the building has changed very little, the museum and gallery have kept up with the times. The exhibitions begin in the foyer of the building with a regularly changing small display in the foyer case. Don't miss the beautiful Kenchester mosaic on your way upstairs and the changing art exhibitions on the stairwell walls. 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 artist 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, swords of every shape and size, elements of costume and textiles and much more besides. The art gallery hosts regularly changing exhibitions of contemporary and historic art and themed object displays from the museum collections. In the Brian Hatton gallery art works by local artist Brian Hatton, killed in the First World War, are currently displayed.
