Manchester Art Gallery
Culturally, Manchester Art Gallery and The Gallery of Costumes is a class act displaying more than six centuries of the city’s finest art works. Best known for its 19th century British paintings, a £35million expansion has transformed the experience.
For those not into fine art, Manchester Art Gallery isn’t your typical art museum experience as amongst its 25,000 items, almost 13,000 are paintings, sculptures, drawings, and photographs, including the world-renowned Pre-Raphaelite paintings.
You’ll also find several unique displays including the Gallery of Costume at Platt Hall with more than 21,000 items of clothing and accessories, ranging from 1600 to modern times. In the Decorate Art Collection, you’ll even see a Levi jeans chair!
