  • Visited the gallery as I always do when in Liverpool. Great as always though this time somewhat unsettling and disturbing too (in a very good and very powerful way!) - thanks to Benedict Drew and the ...  more »
  • It is an excellent Gallery, with many works of art in its interior. And that's the problem: that either you arrange before, to decide which rooms want to visit, or it is impossible to see it all in a single day. So if you like art and want to make good use of the visit and squeezing it, dedicated several minutes to see the web to decide what is what most interests you.

  • 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.
