Hereford Cider Museum Trust is an Independent Charitable Trust (Charity number 1158061) and was founded in 1973 to preserve the history of cider making worldwide. The extensive collection includes cider mills, presses, bottles, old photographs, watercolours, advertising memorabilia and a rare collection of English lead crystal cider flutes.

The museum continues to collect artefacts associated with the history of cider making and has achieved Accreditation status (awarded by the Arts Council, England) for its standards of care applied to the collection.

For a glimpse of some of the collections and the stories behind them, see this film commissioned by The National Association of Cidermakers, whose support we appreciate.
