  • An art gallery is not my usual kind of place to visit. It was on the york pass and I found myself outside so I had a look. A couple of interesting things but most things are not art for me. I could however see that others may find the items fasinating. If your into art its worth going.
  • I've visited York Art Gallery twice. Both visits have been a delight. A fascinating mix of styles and well structured exhibits and information. Although relatively small when compared to some of the large city galleries, York sits at the top of my list for those to which I will return.
  • I am old enough to remember when art galleries were free to enter and people were encouraged to find an appreciation for art. I know I did, spending many hours studying the paintings in several galleries around Yorkshire. York art gallery is ok but not really worth the fee, there are better collections to view for free elsewhere.
  • It is a great place to spend your afternoon. The gallery is well organised as well as the fountain is lovely outside were you could pay an ice cream and site beside.
  • Fantastic small collection. Worth the price of admission!
