Close to being the perfect gallery: a human scale, wonderful selection, well displayed - a bit of everything without being eclectic. It's a great idea to have the occasional object d'art amongst the paintings and all in context.

The Walker has expanded so it seems to go on forever. It has many works of art organised by era, including many by very well known artists. The galleries are well laid out and are very interesting. There did seem to be a lack of landscape paintings though. Also the modern art guest installation was one of those pretentious pieces... More

We found the Walker to be a fascinating collection. The 1st floor galleries are great. We especially liked the post Pre-Raphaelites area. The sculpture room had interesting information about the supposed age of many items found in most museums and private collections. Off of the Sculpture room was a fascinating room with Decorative Arts including an exhibit of dresses made... More

Very near the World Museum... lots and lots of steps if walking is a problem.... my friend found it tough going and we only checked out the excellent Sculpture Gallery on the Ground Floor... Monet, Degas Cezanne etc will have to wait for another visit - when we won't be attacking the World Museum and the Walker in the same... More

Had an hour to spare in central Liverpool when taking my son to visit his grandparents. Dropped into the Walker for the first time in lord knows how long. It continues to have an amazing collection - surely one of the best for a regional gallery in the UK - but they now have a lot more interactivity than the... More

As well s the large selection of Pre-Raphaelite paintings, there are hundreds of others, arranged chronologically, as well as changing exhibitions. There is also an interactive arts room for young children, a lovely selection of goods to buy and an inexpensive cafe.

A free visit does not mean that the museum is of low quality, instead, all the exhibitions within are of world class quality.
