This was the best visit I've made to the Grundy. There was a wider range of art on display than usual. Including the best of the Grundy's own art including some that were presented by the contemporary art society in the 1920s. Coupled with the...More

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.

Wanted something to do, and from the outside this art gallery looks big, minus the library. Talking to the receptionist who said "I love this place, there is 3 floors full of art", 3 floors is not what we got. Walking through to the gallery,...More

Recently I visited this art gallery, it's next to the central library, Blackpool and really I missed all these days, because I am a regular to the library! Without special exhibitions, not much to see here, just some paintings only. But for Blackpool it's fine!
