Opened in 1824 and designed by Sir Charles Barry, Manchester Art Gallery is as spectacular on the outside as the work exhibited inside.
The gallery reopened in 2011 after a £35million makeover and now has twice as much space to show off an array of work from the city’s art collection, famously including Pre-Raphaelite and Victorian paintings.
Since the renovation, three new galleries are available to showcase work from the 20th century including the Gallery of Craft and Design, hosting one of the best decorative art collections in the country, and the CIS Manchester Gallery, which gives visitors a visual history of the city’s art and design.
