This is a museum in the old school wooden floorboards and imposing Victorian style. The art is good and accessible to all, certainly not the kind of uplifting thing you can see in more modern galleries. All quite large and dramatic. We spent an enjoyable hour here, no serious art critics among us so not an experts view. A great... More

Loved this gallery. Did not realise how much " old masters " art was housed there, something for everyone to appreciate.

We visited the gallery for the exhibition, and found there was so much more to see and experience. Loved the building, and it was very close to our hotel- another plus.

An unexpected gallery in the centre of Liverpool with a wide variety of art, great for children to learn about many forms of art.

Despite the slightly cluttered layout (on the ground floor), this art gallery has some excellent examples of famous artists (Lowry, Rembrandt, Matisse, Spencer) as well as some very impressive local artists. The impressionist art was, in my opinion, particularly first-rate. The gallery seemed to be very well visited, which is nice to see. There is a ridiculous blow-up cat called... More

I visit this Gallery a lot. The collections change frequently and the current Victorian treasures is out of this world. It is a must to see Even if there wasn't always something new to view, I never tire of the permanant collections. Outside of London Liverpool and merseyside offer the best to see in terms of art and culture

A great collection of art and paintings, including quite a few really famous paintings and artists including Titian. Some of the galleries are not that well set out but there is an 'exhibition' which is very nicely displayed. The Walker is well worth a visit.
