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 of 65,000 local photographs.
