Art Gallery
“An acclaimed branch of the Tate Gallery has been established in the Albert Dock. As chance would have it, the London Tate Gallery - established at the end of the 19th century with a legacy from the sugar magnate Sir Henry Tate - found space in the warehouses where raw sugar was stored before being refined. The ground floor of the "Tate of the North" has exhibition halls and galleries dedicated to contemporary art as well as works on loan from the London gallery. Art lovers should also check out The Victoria Gallery and Museum. In a spectacular red-brick building at the University of Liverpool, the museum includes large collections of sculptures and ceramics, along with an impressive array of paintings by the likes of Lucian Freud and J. M. W. Turner. The facility also boasts a program of educational lectures and workshops, as well as a café and shop.”

Art Gallery
“The Walker Art Gallery boasts a rich collection of works by Italian, Flemish, and French masters from the 14th century to the present, including masterpieces by Rubens, Rembrandt, and Rodin. Its display of English painting and sculpture, particularly of the 18th to 20th centuries, is unrivaled outside London and features works by Gainsborough, Hogarth, and Moore. Of particular note is the poignant farewell scene at Liverpool's Pier Head, as depicted by John J. Lee, entitled Sweethearts and Wives. The John and Peter Moore Exhibition, an important display of contemporary British art, is held every alternate year. Associated with the Walker Art Gallery, Sudley House is an early 19th-century mansion on Mossley Hill and is home to a gallery containing artists such as Gainsborough and Turner.”
