'Victorian Treasures' exhibition was a super but there's a lot more here to see so beat a path to the Walker!

So much to see from the wonderful sculpture gallery to the Victorian artists to 20th century work. Large enough to be a treasure trove and small enough to be manageable

This (free) exhibition has some excellent examples of Victorian art, including some pre-Raphaelite masterpieces by my favourite William Holman Hunt.

Some amazing works in here, well worth a visit if you're interested in art and art history. Maybe doesn't have the cachet of the Tate, but some of the works in here are pretty serious; Sickert, Rembrandt etc. Well worth a shufty.

It's a spacious art museum with lots of things to see, divided into sections. There's art from all different parts of the world and from all different eras. No two pieces are the same so... More

Visited for a few hours - if you are serious it will take this time. Some quite magnificent art and well displayed. It goes back some way so much larger than you think when you arrive. Refreshments available too.

We really needed more time than we'd allowed to appreciate this gallery.Such beautiful artwork, could spend a day and it wouldn't be enough time! Need to return on our next visit to Liverpool.

Aww, we came here on one of our first dates a few years ago and it was wonderful. There are some very interesting pieces, very vintage and iconic to some. Would highly recommend when visiting Liverpool.
