I go here quite a few times each year. I like to view the new exhibitions and look at some old favourites. One can sit and absorb the tranquil atmosphere and study the pieces on display be they sculpture, wood turnings, photographs or paintings. And it is all free. One can contribute if one wishes. What a gift this place... More

A visit to this museum had some great surprises. Entry is free as part of Liverpool cultural experience.Loved the eclectic mix in the John Moores exhibition although didn't agree with judges selection !!! However the highlight was the Grayson Perry tapestries which are stunning and something not replicated in many places.Brilliant.

We went to see the Grayson Perry tapestries which were excellent and we did not have time to do the rest of the gallery justice but what we saw was very good.

The Walker Art gallery is a fabulous building. The fact that it remains free to enter is great as it is accessible to all.

My family and I had a wonderful time recently exploring this amazing gallery. There are many excellent pieces from the well known Pre Raphaelites, Gaisborough, Lowry, etc as well as a really good collection of sculptures and very early tryptichs. But it was the staff that made our day special, in particular, the gentleman who advised us where to start... More

Staff were extremely welcoming and helpful recommending exhibition highlights e.g. Grayson Perry The Vanity of Small Differences. I honestly only went because the staff member was so polite, helpful and had suggested I view it. I was definitely not disappointed , only on until... More

Loved this gallery and made a special journey from Hampshire as I had read they have a number of Pre-Raphaelite paintings and they were wonderful. The gallery was well laid out with many wonderful paintings. The trip was really worthwhile.
