  • Very interesting mix of items - art, sculpture and ceramics. The Flesh exhibition is a mixed bag - some of the paintings and sculptures are interesting, some are a little too 'modern art' for me. Vide...  read more »
  • Feel that the original art gallery had more to offer than it does now. The caramic exhibition is certainly a case of the Emperors New Clothes, and the Flesh exhibition has limited appeal. 
  • A some weeks ago I attended a one day course at the art gallery. At lunchtime I decided to have lunch in the gallery cafe. It was quite busy but I was given a table very quickly. The surroundings are ...  read more »
  • Good exhibition on ````first World War . The rest of the gallery whilst being beautifully renovated has alas nothing of note to fill the lovely space. one nice Grayson Perry over priced and pretentious
  • Lovely building, fancy cafe, friendly staff and interesting exhibits. Family visit on a birthday trip to York. I called ahead to check on wheelchair access and suitability for our 8 year old. Absolutely fab visit, in fact we are visiting again this weekend as we spent so long in only a few of the exhibit spaces. Our daughter found so much to do and we adults were very relaxed as so much consideration has been taken to involve and inspire everyone. Several sculptures with signs encouraging touching! Everything was clearly labelled and we enjoyed the computer screens that showed what all the pottery exhibits were. In terms of access, the doors are electronic, excellent lifts, locker system and fairly priced. As a wheelchair user It was half price and I could have a carer come in for free with me. As under 16 year old were free it was a very good value visit. Ate in cafe. Maybe too expensive for every visit but as it was my birthday we enjoyed fancy open sandwiches (salmon, cream cheese and dill on foccacia .... And ham and apple) our daughter enjoyed a lovely macaroni cheese as it was a cold day. All came with fresh side salad and friendly service. Gorgeous selection of fruit cordials, teas and coffees etc. Cafe looks tricky for wheelchairs.... But after a few second of rearranging the staff discreetly made it easy. Cracking place.... Came back on here as we're going again tomorrow!
  • Great place .great layout . Great art .
  • This is a must visit if you;re in York. they have some very moving World War 2 paintings, and the ceramic display is rally interesting.
  • Shocked to discover a £7.50 entry free. Such a significant barrier to entry. Completely understand the need to generate revenue but this just isn't affordable, especially with so many UK tourist cities having free or cheaper galleries and museums.
