A wonderful diversity of art

The Walker Art Gallery is well worth a visit, especially the room of Liverpool artists which gives insights into the city's history.

Title my reason for visit. A must see painting for me. Also has a copy of the Death of Nelson from the House of Lords. It has lifts up to the galleries. They have Medieval through modern galleries. I saw all but the modern. it has a Hans Holbein of Henry VIII too. Worth a quick visit.

Amazing artworks, several rooms to explore. It is a lovely place to visit and to learn about art - it is another place I cannot believe that it is free!

I was quite disappointed by the Walker and I'm seriously enthusiastic about most things Liverpool. I feel it is limited by it's building, as the Birmingham Art Gallery is, although Birmingham has a far superior pre-Raphaelite collection if that is your interest. Everything at the Walker is a bit cramped and outdated which is sad in such a vibrant city... More

A wonderful collection of art work and really lovely exhibits in what was called the craft room. Spent a good few hours here and well worth a visit.

Could spend all day in this great museum-so much to see,so many masters on show! When you leave,just walk over the road and sit in the small park and 'chill-out'.

We really enjoyed our visit to the gallery. On the ground floor is a room full of sculptures and a café, while upstairs is the main art gallery. There is plenty to see, and some very high standard paintings, including an exact replica of the Mona Lisa. Lots of things were geared at little ones, too, and the gallery is... More

This museum is chronologically set out, with mediaeval art in Room 1, going through to contemporary art in Rooms 12-15. The best displays are at the beginning and the end, and the whole place is beautifully and clearly set out. To cap it all, they have a small cafe that serves excellent scouse (we didn't know what it was, but... More

I adore Art. This gallery as a youngster used to amaze me.Sadly the management have decided that today rubbish art work has to be mixed with the giants in the art world. They have ruined an amazing place.,
