Lady Lever Gallery is free to visit, with plenty of free parking close by. Check out the Picasso display which features linocut prints from the British Museum Collection. His pieces include "Still life under the lamp", "Jacqueline Reading", and the "Nude woman at the spring". Picasso produced these fantastic linocuts in 1962 when he was well over eighty years of...

The Lady Lever Art Gallery actually contains much more then art, with furniture, ornaments, sculpture, tapestries and more. There is a first-class pre-Raphaelite section, with other world class artists such as Turner, Constable, Millais and even a Singer-Sargeant. Lord Lever was an eclectic collector and toured the world buying Oriental and Asian, as well as English, artefacts and furniture and... More

This gallery, sporting an adorable, well furnished coffee house and eatery, has some of the most renowned artists in the world, including The Romantics - Rossetti, Holman-Hunt and Millais on its walls throughout the year. Superb sculptures by many, including Edward Onslow Ford. While many galleries on Merseyside are well-publicised, this gallery, on the Estate build by Lord Lever, just... More

It is a nice relaxing way to spend a morning followed by a leisurely lunch at the restaurant below with warm soup of the day and bread and whatever else you would like from the limited yet satisfying menu. The gallery itself is well stocked with the collections of William Hesketh Lever. There are paintings, sculptures, artefacts, antique furniture, and... More

A small collection with some interesting exhibits but too many very average items. The building itself is lovely.

This is a major museum in an unexpected location . William Lever the soap king was a great collector and this museum not only shows how the collection was displayed when the museum was opened but also how the collection was displayed at his various homes. Not all his objects were what he thought they were as it appears that... More

There is a bit of nearly everything in this gallery, all nicely displayed and explained in a splendid building. There is a decent cafe in the basement and easy parking right outside. The items on display are of the highest quality - the Wedgwood collection was amazing, with the best display of Wedgwood and Boulton's cut steel and jasperware items... More
