Paintings by Dutch Masters, British Romantics, and French Impressionists all make their home here. Join one of the daily introductory tours to see highlights from the collection.

  • Great place to visit! My son loves it!, they have a separate play area where kids can draw ,play ,listen to stories,dress up ,read and lots more! Plus the actual main part has things for young and older kids to do like spotting certain pictures and some spot the difference sheets on some you find! And it's great for adults as the painting and sculptures are incredible!
  • A visit to this museum is a must! Its always a shock when you see an artwork for the first time in real life that you have only ever seen in books, This museum does that. It does that allot! Its also a beautiful museum! well worth a visit!
  • We know nothing about art, but we spent quite some time in here. There is a lot to see. Worth a visit.
  • One of the many wonderfull places to vsiit in Liverpool. Really liked the modern art section which even the kids enjoyed. They had a farting toilet on display which funnily enough my 9 year old son thought was the best thing ever! Nice little cafe and gift shop as well.
  • Excellent Gallery, excellent half day out. Interesting exhibitions. Nice cafe and shop Free to use (asks for donations)
