Salford Museum and Art Gallery

Salford Museum and Art Gallery was the UK’s ‘first free public library’, which opened in January 1850, followed in November by a museum and art gallery. The building was a mansion house known as Lark Hill, which had been built in the 1790s and has given its name to our famous Lark Hill Place; a Victorian street within the museum.

Today, Salford Museum and Art Gallery presents an exciting programme of permanent displays and changing contemporary exhibitions together with a range of events and activities guaranteed to inspire which completes a must visit experience for individuals, families, schools and organisations to come and enjoy. When you have visited the galleries why not pop into our cafe or purchase a souvenir in the museum shop.

Our learning and communities programme allows everyone to get involved with the museum – perhaps taking part in a Victorian washday, learning new crafts or reminiscing with our memory boxes.

Look into the art gallery

5/ 5

When you appreciate the arts, you’ll enjoy browsing through the gallery. They’re more into the contemporary, so if you’re one who fancies stuff like that I would highly encourage you to check what they have in store. I’d like to check into those memory boxes, I wasn’t able to look into that. But gladly I was able to purchase stuff from the souvenir shop at good prices!
