Building works

Due to ongoing building works the Victorian Gallery will be periodically closed. Please call us on 0161 778 0800 prior to travelling to check if the gallery is open to avoid disappointment. We apologise for any inconvenience this causes.

Once works are completed we aim to have these galleries fully open to visitors again, and ask that you bear with us during the works as we may have to close parts of galleries at short notice.

We will do our best to keep all our media channels up to date and look forward to seeing the building fully open again this summer for the Royal Academy Exhibition.
