Very disappointed with staff attitude , they couldn’t explain why a teacake took more than 15minutes to come out from the kitchen. We will never visit this place

I have been here twice to see temporary exhibitions - on Picasso linocuts and Japanese prints. They were great (and free!). The permanent collection is also very interesting. The building is stunning. Very nice place to visit.

Very lucky to live near this absolute gem of an art gallery. Suits all ages; frequent activities and regular visiting exhibitions. Initial restoration has brought an already stunning gallery to an even higher standard. All for free too!!

Merseyrail, Lime Street, Central or James Street to Bebbington or Port Sunlight. It’s a 10 minute walk max from either.
