An excellent way to spend half a day browsing art from renaissance through to contemporary in 15 separate galleries. The current exhibition "Only in England" photographs by Tony Ray Jones and Martin Parr is well worth a visit. There is a pleasant cafe, baby changing facilities, pram storage and luggage lockers. Handy for Lime Street Station and the City Museum.

this has a large collection of varied & diverse art, the cafe has good food too. Always something new to look at & the resident collection beats most other city galleries.

A fine building endowed at the peak of Liverpool's prosperity and beautifully located near St George's Hall and the entrance to the Mersey Tunnel! I really like the collection, especially the Pre-Raphaelites. A lovely place to spend a couple of hours.

Interesting collection in an interesting building. Conveniently located. The only problem was that some of the paintings should have been illuminated better -- but given the age/style of the building, that would be difficult.

She did Glueing and sticking, drawing, a brass rubbing, using the different magnetic games and the book area. Although she loved dressing up in the different clothes... More

This gallery far exceeded my expectations. I was really impressed with the collection on display as it is far better than what is usually to be seen in provincial British galleries. There are some quite famous works here, including portraits of English monarchs Elizabeth I, Henry VIII, and Charles II which most people will easily recognise if they have any... More
