This is a small gallery with a very limited collection. I didn't go,into,the Rodin part of the Gallery so maybe this is the more exciting part of the museum

Central to the city of Leeds, the Art Gallery is big enough to be interesting, but small enough to give one a feeling of intimacy. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable and a highlight must be the gallery's restaurant where you can have a good pastry or light lunch. The restaurant is, in itself, a reason to visit the museum!

This is a delightful, compact Gallery with surprisingly good exhibits. The staff are helpful and friendly and keen to help you with enquiries. I would also recommend the rather architecturally interesting restaurant.

Came here with family and most of it was closed off for some reason. It didn't take very long to view because of that. Judging on what I have seen though the place was very average. Nothing special. I can't really say much more except at least its free!!

We really enjoyed our visit here. The building is beautiful and the staff are helpful and friendly. If you're in Leeds and want something to do that's cheap and cultural I'd recommend a visit. We didn't go in but the cafe also looked wonderful.

I notice this was voted 34th out of 102v attractions in Leeds. No offence intended to Leeds, which is a great city, but what are top 33? Okay, it isn't as big as Birmingham Art Gallery, or Manchester or the Walker in Liverpool, but we are talking some serious quality here. Inevitably, for a Northern English city, it has it's... More

This small museum contains some interesting pieces... especially from the WWI period British movement known as "Vorticism" which I found compelling. The museum also often has good temporary exhibitions that are worth seeing. It is free!

Not having been to the Art Gallery since I was young lad, I had some time free en route to an appointment elsewhere, so took the opportunity to call in. It is free entrance so what more do you want, liked what I saw during visit, so will make effort to spend a bit more time next visit. Especially liked... More
