Lark Hill Place
For one year only, as part of the programme of World War One commemorations, the museum has changed the street's theme setting from 1897 to 1918 to illustrate how World War One changed life in Salford. Visitors can explore the street and dress up in traditional costume to really get in the spirit of things!
Relax amidst the splendour of our Victorian Gallery and admire the paintings, decorative art and fine art.
From the re-decoration and re-hanging of Victorian artworks, the gallery now includes all the old favourites previously on display, as well as works from our stores.
Salford Museum's Pilkington collection is the largest in the UK. In the early 20th century, a local firm, Pilkington's, based at Clifton Junction near Swinton, Salford was one of the most important international suppliers of high quality decorative tiles and art pottery.
It contains examples of almost every artist and most types of ware produced by the factory between 1900-1958 and the 1970s.
By Hand Gallery
This permanant gallery space showcases handmade work by independent artists and craftspeople.
This is an opportunity to buy that special gift, or to treat yourself!
