The Hereford Museum and Art Gallery is a local museum in the cathedral city of Hereford, Herefordshire, England.[1]

The museum is housed in a Victorian Gothic building. It opened in 1874 and exhibits artefacts, fine art, and decorative art associated with the local area.

Exhibitions[edit]

There are regular temporary exhibitions of craftwork, paintings, photography, and prints.[2] In 2006, the bicenterary of Joseph Murray Ince was celebrated with an exhibition.[3] The designs of Christopher Dresser were exhibited in 2007.[4] An exhibition of work by the locally born artist Brian Hatton (1887–1916) was displayed at the gallery between November 2007 and January 2008.[5][6]

Accessibility[edit]

In 2005, the museum became the first in the United Kingdom to invest in the Talking Tactile Tablet (T3),[7] developed at the UK's Royal National College for the Blind in Hereford together with a software company based in the USA.[8]
