Tullie House Museum and Art Gallery

Cumbria

Free entry and free exhibitions

Tullie House has one of the largest purpose-built contemporary art galleries in the north of England and hosts exhibitions of regional, national and international importance.

Set in beautiful gardens, Old Tullie House is a Grade I Listed building, and holds collections of fine and decorative art, human history and natural sciences. Included are 4800 paintings, watercolours, drawings, prints and sketchbooks, and a small collection of sculpture dating back as far as 1650.


Permanent collection

As well as representing artists from north Cumbria, the house contains a nationally important collection of Pre-Raphaelite art, with works by DG Rossetti, Elizabeth Siddal, William Morris and Ford Madox Brown. Meanwhile, the human history archive uses objects, photographs and other ephemera to interpret the lives and activities of the people who have lived in northern Cumbria over the last 10,000 years.​

Don't miss the Roman Frontiers Gallery, which explores the western end of Hadrian's Wall, just nearby. Other archaeological exhibits at the gallery span from the Old Stone Age to the Celt, Viking and Middle Ages.
