When everyone is worshiping on the altar of consumerism take a look at the Walker and its rich collection of beauty and peace all for free.The Rossetti Dante's dream is my favourite and exudes love and loss with such beauty. See if you can find your favourite.

A wonderful collection of paintings - especially the early Italian stuff & the C20 British art. The service in the cafe was terrible. Waited at the counter for 5 mins - had a look round the shop - back to the counter - still no staff. Went to look in the kitchen - was finally asked by 2 gossiping women... More

I was pleasantly surprised by this top notch collection. I have been back twice since. I make a point to set aside time to come here every time I am in Liverpool. Just a beautiful collection. Bravo.

Growing up and living in Liverpool makes special places in the city seem mundane. We tend not to appreciate the wonderful things we have because we pass them all the time. It is good to act like a tourist occasionally. I spent a happy couple of hours in the gallery and had forgotten what an impressive collection it has. It... More

Took my son here for a day out in Liverpool. He was really taken back with the art and enjoyed every minute!

I'm not a seasoned art gallery visitor, but don't mind visiting them for something different. I was pleasently surprised that this one had lots of variety and different types of paintings and artists featured from traditional to modern. The building they are in is spectacular, it can be quite confusing when walking around to work out what rooms you have... More

I love the Walker Art Gallery in many ways. It's free for a start. That's great. I love the sculpture gallery. You can wander round and get up close to study beautiful human figures engaged in various activities (such as reading or walking blindly). If you did that to real live human beings you'd probably pretty soon get assaulted or... More

What's not to like, fabulous building with wonderful collection, great little cafe too. Art across the ages and genres, personal favourite is the 'loophonium' Surrealism at its wittiest
