The sculpture room was a good start but very few paintings were first rate.Yes the gallery boasts works by many of the greats but not their best compared to displays in other cities outside London. Cafe quite limited which seems to be typical of all the Liverpool museums.The older man welcoming visitors was really helpful.

Liverpool's premier art gallery (ahead of the Tate) - a must for visitors of the city. This is a wonderful gallery for art lovers to visit. While the focus is on 19th century British paintings, with an impressive selection of works by the Pre-Raphaelite school (Rossetti,. Burne-Jones, etc), the collection is diverse and includes many international works, from the 14th... More

A really good collection of art - something for every taste,. When we visited, there was a photographic exhibition on too, but generally there is a very wide ranging collection, well set out with friendly and courteous staff. We were staying nearby, and popped in several times during our city break to look again at certain exhibits.

Really good range of art for every taste. I really enjoyed their interactive areas, it is one thing to view art but reading others reactions to a piece really added to the experience.

Thought this was a great gallery - very friendly and a very good photography exhibition - probably best I have seen so go see while it is still on. Loads of activities for kids and there were loads there in half term that was good to see.

Excellent gallery with a great selection of art on display. Massively enjoyed about 2.5 hrs here and could easily have spent longer. Would recommend a visit for anybody with even the slightest interest in art.
