Always a good place to spend an hour or two no matter how many times you visit. Lovely cafe and a nice selection of cakes and pastries.

“Great couple of hours”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

I'm not a great lover of art not do I understand why some peices are supposed to be valuable and some are not. However Manchester Art Gallery has a varied selection of styles, some peices can make you go wow, and is easy to walk through as all is laid out. It's a great place to unwind for free, and take a breather from every day stresses. Highly recommended.

I love this art gallery with a passion. The paintings are beautiful and the staff are also very approachable and helpful.
The fact that it's free is a plus.

“Lovely accessible art gallery”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

Very handy if you're staying in the city centre to pop in here for an hour or two. It's not massive but it still has quite a mix of artistic styles. Plenty of staff on hand to help and answer any questions.
