  • I was a little surprised to pay for entry as many in UK are free. However having paid to go to some of most famous galleries in Europe I paid my admission fee. I was told it would take 1-2 hours. Well...  more »
  • Brilliant gallery. Great for a family day out which is not something you'd expect from an art gallery. The do charge on the door but the cost covers all the exhibitions and any workshops that are on. We visited at Easter with three kids who were delighted to have a hands on creative workshop to entertain them and lots of things to see and do and touch(!) in the upstairs spaces. There was an excellent Paul Nash exhibition on when we went and a very interesting collaboration with students from Central St. Martins in London. A ticket will allow you to return as many times as you like all day and entrance is free to anyone with a York discovery card.
  • Wonderful gallery with some fantastic permanent exhibitions and great interactive elements to keep the kids interest. They loved creating their own artwork inspired by the others around them. Go for the annual pass if you live anywhere nearby as the other museums included are also brilliant!
  • Excellent exhibitions - good one focussing on John and Paul Nash currently - the amount of material can vary. There is an activity corner for children and a work room for school groups. Interesting shop selling original works - emphasis on ceramics at the moment - and a separate sales area for cards and similar small items in the foyer. The gardens are now an extension of the gallery, but if you explore them late in the afternoon they might, in a fit of closing time diligence, drop the steel shutter to prevent your return to the main exhibition area. I took it in good heart and have survived ......
  • Visited the gallery for the first time today. The bottom half of the gallery was shut because they are putting up a new exhibition but it was pleasing only to be charged half the entrance fee due to this as other places are just bothered about getting every penny off you they can. Some amazing exhibits on display and I liked the hands on displays where visitors could involved especially the babbies.
  • Excellent exhibition of Paul Nash etchings, photography and paintings. This was particularly enriched by biography pieces and the art of his close friends and family particularly his brother. Enjoyed revisiting the rest of the gallery too.
