Probably the best art collection in the country outside London. Always something fresh to see as well as important pieces from the past.

Really nice relaxed atmosphere with some fantastic exhibitions and all free. Cafe on the ground floor is good value with some great choices in cake.

We do like the variety of exhibitions. We are generally in Liverpool three times a year and always check out what's on. We went to see the early Hockney exhibition which we enjoyed and last year saw the Rankin exhibition which was excellent.

As I have mobility problems access was no problem as there is a ramp at the main entrance and a lift to the first floor. some of the artwork is hard to see due to poor lighting arrangements. On the whole well worth a visit.

I spent an enjoyable couple of hours here. Sometimes galleries/museums are so big that you are overwhelmed by the volume of paintings on display and you don't really appreciate the masterpieces you are seeing. This gallery is the perfect size, there is a great selection paintings from different era's and of different styles, so there should be something to suit... More

We visited here and it was great, full if beautiful pictures. The cafe is lovely to have a drink in, and it's nice to be able to sit and look at the pictures. I will visit here again as they have regular changes in exhibitions.

We spent hours in this Gallery and could have spent longer. There are some wonderful works of art to see and all for free although donations are welcomed.

I love this place, great idea for children to do the "spot the difference" with the pictures. Great building, exhibits and coffee! I could spend hours viewing the exhibits but I have also whizzed round for a quick fix.

Hubby is a bit of an artist and loves coming here. I am not much of an artist so can't enjoy it to it's fullest potential but still enjoy coming!
