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 their 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 their cafe or purchase a souvenir in the museum shop.
Their 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 memory boxes.
