A relatively small Art Gallery which hosts a wide variety of paintings and sculptures. Excellent shop and restaurant.

Thank Arty Bibi

Very unique museum in a great setting. Was disappointed by the shop and the cafe however, but did not take away from the trip there

The Manchester Art gallery has some excellent paintings of it's own but also has wonderful exhibitions too.
On top of that it's free entry, although it's obviously worth making a donation .

They keep all their great works of art hidden from public view, and as I found out later, you have to arrange an appointment to view them.
So we wasted an afternoon visiting the Gallery in the hope of seeing something worthwhile.
