Leominster (pronounced ‘Lemster’) Museum is housed in a former mission house for railwaymen, and exhibits an impressive collection of artefacts relating to Leominster and the local area.
 
Artefacts are displayed in appropriate settings e.g. haymaking tools and draft horse harnesses are in a stable block, and cider making equipment is in a Cider Mill.
 
Exhibits include banknotes and cheques from the Leominster & Herefordshire Bank, early local postage marks, material from the Leominster and Kington Railway, and skeletal remains from the Bronze Age Aymestrey burial.
 
The most recently opened display entitled "Rifles and Spades", commemorates the local effects of World War I on Leominster and the English county of Herefordshire.
 
Also on display are a number of works by the Leominster-born artist John Scarlett Davis, including an 1828 self-portrait, and a book of 173 sketches, purchased for £11,000 at auction at Christie's in March 1979.
