I like museums. I actually at one in Liverpool. The Lady Lever is good because it is not too big so you don't get bored/tired walking round. Good for kids too because they often have clothes for them to dress up in. And the cafe is delicious!!

Went specifically to visit the Venice exhibition. First time visited and only live across the water in Liverpool. Was very, very impressed. The exhibition was only a small part of the collection. Some lovely sculptures as well as painting and furniture. Used the audio guide which was easy to use and helpful. Intend to visit again in the not too... More

This is a great art gallery portraying the eclectic taste of Lord Leverhulme. It was going through a major building work while we visited so we didn't see some of the exhibits we'd seen before. It is a must though for anyone who remembers the soap adverts as the original paintings are here, as well as some of the most... More

When we arrived we were met by an employee/volunteer? He was very informative and gave us a brief outline of what there was to see. There was a "venice" exhibition on, which we enjoyed. Lord Lever was very philanthropic and a huge collector. It was built after his wife died and is large and well laid out. Very interesting.There is... More

I have visited the museum many times over the years! It is free to get in which means that you can pop in for an hour or for several hours! It is a beautiful building and all the paintings and exhibits are wonderful. The staff are warm and welcoming and the cafe downstairs is a real treat, especially the cakes

This gallery houses some of the items collected by Lord Leverhulme. It is an eclectic mix with a variety of furniture and paintings including some Pre-Raphaelite originals. Entrance is free and the food is reasonable in quality and price. Parking right outside is free. The surroundings houses built for the workers at Port Sunlight are also interesting.

Even though there is major work taking place here, and many of the exhibits are off touring round Japan, this is an absolutely fantastic collection. There are lots of paintings, as well as sculpture and furniture. It really is quite an eclectic collection.......but I loved it. The Pre-Raphelite collection is one of the best I've seen.

I'm very lucky to have two good art galleries within 20 mins from each other. A great collection of Pre-Raphaelite art. Good way to spend a couple of hours.
