  • What an exciting nature works. The sculptures are so real and fine finishing. It has a great touch with reality. Words will fall me to describe how I feel about it. Is so so cute. Can’t get my head of it. Go get your feelings too.
  • Really good art gallery, with an interesting permanent exposition and currently with the temporary kaleidoscope which is quite good they have a space for children and do plenty of activities with them to promote their artistic side. The entry is free. You have lockers to leave your things. Although they only work with the old pounds, it is not a problem as the staff will give you a token.
  • ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT. What an amazing gallery that always hosts exciting exhibitions. The Singh Twins are currently on display and their work definitely needs seeing. It's fantastic. Very helpful staff and great coffee shop also make it a great stopping point. Enjoy!
  • It is such a nice museum. Great variety of different historical periods and styles, then with some modern thrown in. I think they've curated the textile end pattern exhibition "Slaves of Fashion" extraordinarily well. This should be a priority if you find yourself in Liverpool.
  • Great place to visit in the heart of Liverpool City center. Has lots to offer, and even a Big Art section for kids, which kept my 2 year old entertained for an hour. Recommended, and right next to the museum which is also well worth a visit!
