If you can you should join an organised trip around this gallery. (this can be booked on arrival) I thought it would be dry and boring but it was utterly fascinating. The guide talked about how and why some of the paintings were acquired and used to help the business of Levers and gave us potted life histories of some... More

Lots of variation and extensive collection in the Art gallery here. Would recommend anyone pop in for a visit if you are in the area (even if you are not an art lover) some very unique exhibits on display

Really enjoyed the visit. Lots of original paintings, including the 'Pears soap' child, that everyone will be familiar with. Fantastic collection of Lord Leverhulme, including many marble sculptures, & Chinese pottery. Steeped in History. Free to enter....Go.

I have always intended to visit this gallery, so close to the Welsh border and home to the iconic "Salem" painting. The Rossetti exhibition finally got me there. It's great, with an atmospheric and relevant music accompaniment - but although that finishes in Sept. 14, there is so much more to see here. Located in the beautiful model village of... More

We visited this on a whim and what a little treasure, located in the garden village of Port Sunlight. There is free parking and the entry is free, although they ask for donations. The Rosetti exhibition was wonderful I have always loved the arts and crafts movement, so to see original artwork close up was wonderful. Something for every one... More

Whilst I was a regular visitor to the Lady Lever many (many) years ago when I was a student in Liverpool; I visited again specially for the Rosetti exhibition (until end of September). I spent a day there over the weekend with two of my (teenage) godchildren and we had a great time (and thoroughly decent meal in the café).... More

Drawn in by the Rossetti exhibition, but there was so so much more. Each room was full of paintings, sculptures, furniture & china. The collections were great all well presented with plenty of information. A good cafe and gift shop, free entry & free parking what more could you want from a visit.

Living in Liverpool and having initially visited this museum / art gallery many years ago I was re-surprised by just how good it is. This establishment was originally built and funded by the industrialist Lord Leverhulme and opened in 1922 by Queen Victoria's youngest daughter Princess Beatrice. Located in the stunning village of Port Sunlight it exhibits many world famous... More
