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.

Sometimes, I'll chsnge trains at Liverpool. The station doesn't have too many decent foot outlets, but yu can spent a pleasant hour or so, in the National Gallery of the North,which is a short walk fromthe station. I know little about art, but I once went here with a titled lady who did. She thought the collection was very much... More

The ground floor had neo-classical statues and dresses from the 1970s, as well as jars and jugs from the 18th and 19th centuries... This seemed very similar to the Victoria and Albert Museum (so if you love that museum, you would love the ground floor!). The second floor had lots of Renaissance art, and 18th and 19th C art but...

I went regularly to the gallery as a child growing up near Liverpool and always found it to be a real "treasure trove", a really special place to visit. I did wonder whether this visit, almost fifty years later, would prove to be a disappointment - it most certainly wasn't! This is a place to visit as often as you... More

It's not a big place but on the ground floor, be sure to see the beautiful sculpture gallery. You can get up close and see pieces from every angle. There was a large school group and children were encouraged to get close and draw what they saw. There was also an exhibit on how useful items from the past we... More

Whilst in Liverpool for a concert at the Arena I visited the gallery. I can't believe that I have never been here before as I live fairly local! It was a smashing experience with some fantastic art and topped off with the wonderful Grayson Perry exhibition of his tapestries. Whilst I had heard of him prior to my visit I... More

This museum is stunning so much to see, I was interested in the Grayson Perry tapestries which refer to his programme made in 2012 about life in various UK towns. There was a short lecture on each tapestry which brought them to life. Well worth a visit.
