We pop in to look at most exhibitions here and wouldn't normally give it 5 stars. However the Grayson Perry tapestry exhibition is worth going to see. Whether it's his name that adds extra favour, whatever it is it works. This is the story of...More

Never having been before, it was delightful. The exhibition was all about clowns. Also there were pictures of tower circus in the 1960's. They also provided write-ups on all the pictures.

Visited the Grundy earlier this week. The Circus 250 exhibition is well worth the visit. Spent a good couple of hours looking round here. The exhibits are very interesting.

First visit to the Grundy museum and not disappointed. Welcome to cultured Blackpool, strongly recommend a visit. Also excellent staff who went out of the way to chat to us and provide lots of interesting information, mind opening.

It is very interesting to see the old gear that has been around the town for a number of years. It is nostalgic for us oldies and fun for the kids to see what interested us

Didn't expect to see a picasso and a Tracey Emin neon wall art! Lovely little gallery- shamer most visitors just stay arounfd the promenade.

We are pretty disappointed with the visit since it mainly contains the display of the photos from one photographer. We visited a lot of other art galleries in other cities and we really expected a more from this gallery.
