I really recommend this art museum. It has a really excellent and varied collection from medieval to modern and contemporary art. It is also well geared to keeping children entertained. I would really love to see a more varied shop as I love to buy items related to some of my favourite pieces, which are usually available at other museums,... More

The Walker has specialized in informing visitors of the place of slavery, and of the wealth created by slavery, in creating its splendid collection. This ensures that art isn't artificially separate from history - so important.

An eclectic collection well displayed and informatively labelled, the Walker is a wonderful expression of two centuries of civic pride. It brings together pieces once commissioned or collected by local notables with others chosen by successive curators to present a survey of art from 13th century France and Italy to the present day. Well worth half a day of anyone's... More

We decided to have a wander round. There are some fabulous pieces of art in the there from all backgrounds. For me personally, I... More

This is my favorite art gallery so far. Besides the extensive collection (from 13th century until contemporary art), there is an explanation about the story behind each painting / painter, which helped me understand the artist's perspective better (as I know nothing about art, apparently). The collections for the special exhibition (REALITY) was amazing! Such a lovely visit!

Spent quite a few hours in this gallery looking at the works of art, the time seemed to go so quickly, that we unfortunately didn't see all the rooms, we shall have to go again another time.

Had a couple of hours to kill (wife and daughter shopping) so I walked to the gallery and asked to be directed to the paintings. Wow what an impressive range arranged in chronological order makes the work a please to view . Must admit I spent less time in the last few rooms but that's a matter of taste.

Building is worth a visit for the structure and not just the art. There is art of every genre and for every taste.
