As a family we regularly visit this hidden gem and on this dismal Saturday we had a bit of lunch and strolled over to one of our favourite places. The Victoria Gallery really is an exceptional place to visit, full of interesting exhibits, art work, artefacts and the architecture and history of the building is fascinating. However this particular visit... More

I dawdle along every now and again to the Victoria Gallery. I like the building and the statues and the quiet. They have some funky orginal art shows that can go over my head. But I did view a photography show on the travellers and Gypsies over a few decades; really good!

We were visiting the Waterloo denture and dentistry exhibit and found an amazing gem. The building is spectacular, the ehibits are interesting, inspiring, varied and beautifully displayed. The staff are friendly, informative and very approachable. I never knew this museum existed despite visiting liverpool many times in the past, I'd highly recommend this museum. A must!!

What a building, fell in love with it and inside has to be seen. Talk to a guide and find some unique Victorian ideas that were installed. The staircase is something-absolutly amazing.

I work nearby so i go to the cafe on the ground floor which is fantastic. Reasonably priced for the quality. I even sometimes get takeaway. The staff are always lovely.

This is a stunning Victorian Masterpiece of a building but what lies inside is a sheer joy. From the most interesting cafe you will come across in Liverpool to the eclectic range of exhibitions in the many galleries spread over its floors. It makes science and engineering really cool with its displays and what a wonder to discover just how... More

Well worth a visit if only to see the tiled walls. It does have a small museum and sometimes has exhibitions on. Café on the ground floor is very nice and reasonably priced.

It was pure serendipity that brought us to this unexpected gem of a museum. And what a joy it was. For a start the Victorian building itself is impressive, inside and out. Then there is the sheer eclecticism of the collection. Whether you are interested in birds (so see the Audubon paintings), dentistry and teeth (so revel in the astonishing... More

An eclectic choice of exhibits, from a wide range of false teeth to a 3D video trying to explain the CERN hadron collider. Well worth a visit for the building itself.

Find the Liverpool University CLOCK tower, in Brownlow Hill, and it is just round the corner. This is the original building of the original "Red Brick" University. It has to be sought out, as it is not in the City Centre, a couple of bus stops up a steep hill, and rather zig-zag from Lime Street station. No longer needed... More
