  • I was lucky enough to visit this Museum when there was a special exhibit on some paintings of pre-raffaeliti (which I personally love). There are also collections of statues of the Italian school (some are copies). The collection of paintings is well stocked and retraces the various artistic styles alternated over the centuries and from artists from different countries. It was a unique visit, exciting ... just great!

  • The museums in Liverpool are free of charge. The building itself is wonderful, with lots of paintings from all eras xx really relaxing and informative
  • Located on William brown street.. 5 minute walk through the St John's gardens from the Queen's square bus station and the lime Street station .. The museum is free to public entry but if there is a special exhibition going on and you wish to see it too, the tickets for it can be purchased at the counter below.. Has a beautiful sculpture gallery and wonderful paintings by pre Raphaelites ... Takes at least 1 to 1.3 hours to see the whole at a glance..
  • Massive museum good art work a must visit of you go liverpool
  • One of the best galleries in the country. Very well laid out into periods. Highly recommend
  • Housed in a Victorian building, this contains impressive pieces from 12th century onwards. Very welcoming with knowledgeable guides conducting regular free tour.
