Manchester Art Gallery
With a National Art Pass you get
Manchester Art Gallery is home to more than 25,000 works of fine and decorative art, spread over three floors.
The museum's civic role is reflected in the collections. A seam of local craftsmanship and influence runs through the galleries, forming a dialogue with continental works and those of national significance. Since being substantially extended in 2002 the museum occupies three buildings, including the Neoclassical Royal Manchester Institution, designed by Charles Barry in 1824.
