Head onto the cobbles of Lark Hill Place, our recreated street and step back in time to experience what life was like in Victorian Salford. Get inspired in our galleries and discover historic masterpieces in the Victorian Gallery, explore the collection further in the Langworthy Gallery or see contemporary artwork from emerging and established artists in our programme of changing exhibitions.
You can do your own research and delve into the archives at the Local History Library, view our world-famous collection of Pilkington’s pottery or check out and purchase jewellery, ceramics, textiles, prints and cards from local designer-makers in our By Hand Gallery.
Children can enjoy quizzes and drawing activities around the building with our Let’s Explore Discovery Trail, meet one of our historical characters on an interactive school session or grab some sweet treats from Mr Tomlinson’s Sweet Shop. A visit to Salford Museum & Art Gallery also gives you the chance to explore Peel Park, located behind the museum. After all that exploring, make sure you call into our café for a hot drink and choose from a delicious selection of hot and cold meals or one of our tempting cakes.
Our varied range of events also gives you the chance to explore Salford Museum & Art Gallery further. Whether its children’s activities during school holidays, getting creative at one of our Craft Socials or joining one of our talks and tours, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.
Don’t forget to round off your visit by calling into our museum shop, where you’ll find a great selection of quality gifts, traditional children’s toys, souvenirs, local history books and prints. You even have the chance to start or add to your own art collection by purchasing an original piece of artwork.
