Ferens Art Gallery re-opened to the public on Friday 13 January 2017 following its £5.1m refurbishment, celebrating the start of Hull's year as UK City of Culture. Opened in 1927, the award winning Ferens Art Gallery combines internationally renowned permanent collections with a thriving programme of temporary exhibitions. The Gallery has a varied education and events programme that includes tours, talks and art workshops. The gallery's first-class permanent collection of paintings and sculpture spans the medieval period to the present day. These include European Old Masters, particularly Dutch and Flemish, portraiture, marine paintings, modern and contemporary British art, including video. Highlights include masterpieces by Frans Hals, Antonio Canaletto, Stanley Spencer, David Hockney, Helen Chadwick and Gillian Wearing.

There are so many beautiful artworks in this gallery. There are 12 different galleries although the 11th one was undergoing maintenance. There is something for everyone here.

Been here a few times so popped in during the recent downpours. Great service as usual and the food and drinks were served to the table quickly and all piping hot. First class as always. Will be back again when in town.

Great gallery, make sure you see the film of the Bue painted people of Hull made when it was City of Culture, it's only about 5 mins long and at the side of the entrance hall

We've just seen the Small Films exhibition and had a wonderful time. We especially appreciated making our own little film and showing the children the things we used to watch.

Every time I go here there is something new to wonder at. The refurbishment now means the gallery punches well above its previous weight in terms of securing national touring exhibitions
