A publicly owned art gallery opened in 1824, Manchester Art Gallery fills three buildings with both domestic and international art. The collection includes works by French Impressionist Pierre Adolphe Valette, "The Picnic" by Wynford Dewhurst, and a Cezanne that depicts scenes from Manchester painted during his stay in the city. William Burges' reformist furniture design as well as a collection of silver and glassware also grace the gallery rooms. Admission to the gallery is free.

  • A wonderful Museum. Second year arrive. The exposition partially changed. Me as a person with artistic and creative nature Gallery was impressed. What's more pleasing that in Manchester most museums are free of charge!

  • Combine the Victorian and Impressionist Arte with modern style like 100 years of Vogue fashion. Nice structured and interesting. 
  • Very nice, well-organized Museum. Great collection and great exhibitions available. A great ride in Manchester.

  • Great, but better collection of Pre-Raphaelites in Birmingham.
  • Fascinating building full of lots of amazing pictures. Also the vogue room that's on at the minute was very interesting.
  • A wide variety of art, from classical to modern, painting to sculpture. It's not a massive museum, but is certianly up there with the best city galleries outside of London. Well worth a visit.
  • The Imitation Game – I attended the Public view Friday evening 6-8pm and was witness to a true crime of art imitation. As the exhibition title can only live up to it’s meaning. Almost devoid exhibits on the gallery floor space, the few that were present quite frankly belong in an GCSE project. Poor does not even begin to describe the curation and execution of this appalling attempt at the subject of Artificial Intelligence and robotics. AVOID.
  • Brilliant free art gallery with regular exhibitions of different artists from all over the world. Multiple floors, a shop, cafe, and more things like tours and kid friendly areas.
