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.

Amazing! If you want to go with your baby/family or friends this an amazing place to go, learn, feel inspired and relax. I love the exhibitions as there are many contemporary art as well. more »
Short trip to Manchester to visit the Manchester Art Gallery on Mosley Street as they were hosting the Grayson Perry exhibition from the C4 Lockdown art program. Excellent free art gallery to visit... more »
Very interesting art gallery. Good permanent + temp exhibitions. The shop is also good for cards etc if you want to get something a bit more unique. Cafe good too
The cafe alone is worth your visit, an oasis of calm in the city with an extensive and somewhat exotic collection of cakes, and a lovely menu of light meals and sandwiches. The quality of the ingredients from the jam to fine and fragrant tea was evident in my cream tea. Service is also efficient and welcoming.
