Owner description: From our historical collections to international contemporary art, we aim to bring fresh perspectives, encourage conversation and spark debate. Explore our collections of fine art, spanning six centuries and including many major modern and contemporary pieces. We are famous for 19th century British paintings, particularly our outstanding collection of Pre-Raphaelite works. Our decorative arts collections showcase the artistry, tastes and techniques of every era and culture, from ancient civilizations to today’s designer makers. Our collections of ceramics, silver, glass, furniture and costume are especially fine. We constantly renew and update our collections displays so you should discover something new every time you visit. And, we're free to visit!

a great visit topped off with a lovely lunch in their cafe which was reasonably priced. it was however rather chilly and noisy, needs some sound damping.

A marvellous facility. The exhibitions are varied and vibrant. The permanent one is comprehensive - the visiting ones varied and always stimulating. Worth a regular look by all Mancunians and a visit by all who come to our city.
