Salford Museum and Art Gallery

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.

Our permanent attractions include a Picture Gallery where you can relax and enjoy the splendour of the Victorians' passion for painting and the decorative arts, or stroll down the Victorian Street and marvel through shop windows displaying their original 19th century wares.

Salford Museum and Art Gallery was the UK's 'first free public library' and today, still houses the city's local history library and archive. You can research your family history or simply indulge in the rich diversity of the library's collection 65,000 local photographs.

Our learning and outreach 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.

The changing contemporary exhibitions, history events and activities programme, completes a must visit experience for individuals, families, schools and organisations to come and enjoy.

We welcome all children accompanied by a responsible adult. Admission is free of charge.
