Really well laid out floor plan of exhibitions, each room dedicated to a different era of art. They have a lovely sculpture room. At the moment they have a modern art exhibition which is truly amazing. This is well worth a visit when in Liverpool. Free! I would recommend an hour here.

Visited Liverpool with all intentions of focussing on visiting the Tate Gallery. By chance came across the Walker Gallery which was a little gem. Works of art crossing all periods in a beautiful setting. Guess it's all a matter of taste but later visited the Tate and preferred the Walker by a mile.

We spent a couple of happy hours checking out a selection of art work at the Walker. There was something to interest everyone in our party. We thoroughly enjoyed tea and cake afterwards in the very reasonable cafe on site!

This gallery has an amazing collection of art from all eras from contemporary to Victorian to 17th century and earlier collections. The sculpture collection in itself is very impressive. The pictures are amazing - no matter what your taste there's something for you. I enjoyed the thought provoking modern art and Henry VIII by Holbein is one of my favourites.... More

Fantastic place! It was much better than I had expected. I really didn't expect such a great collection in a place like Liverpool (sorry? heh). It is a very well curated gallery, in my opinion. I enjoyed the lovely art descriptions as well as the bigger blurbs in some of the gallery rooms. Rooms #6 and #11 were particular favourites.... More

The collection that the Walker has is phenomenal. I was very excited to see their Pre-Raphaelite collection and I didn't leave unimpressed. The Walker Art Gallery is well worth a visit.
