Hereford Waterworks Museum is holding its first in-steam event of the year on Sunday 31st March 2019. The Museum is keen to encourage people with disabilities to visit, with their carer if appropriate, and entry will be free to people with disabilities and their carer on the day. (Entry is free for all children under 16 throughout the year.)
The Waterworks Museum is a destination for steam and industrial history enthusiasts, as well as a family attraction, and includes an award-winning children’s Heritage Water Park. It tells the history of drinking water through working steam engines, interactive displays and hands-on activities, and when the engines are in-steam, visitors can experience the sights, sounds and smells of a bygone age.
Volunteers will be on hand to show the exhibits and encourage visitors to try out the historical water devices. The displays in the exhibition area are at a low-level so everyone can see, hear, play and touch. There are audio-visual displays, pick up and touch tactile objects and replica artefacts. All parts of the site can be accessed by wheelchair users and all signs use lettering which is legible to those with impaired vision. Outside displays have dropped kerbs and paved access.
