Salford Museum and Art Gallery was the UK’s ‘first free public library’, which opened in January 1850. The building was a mansion house known as Lark Hill, which had been built in the 1790s and has given its name to our famous Lark Hill Place; a Victorian street within the museum.
Today, 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 which completes a must visit experience for individuals, families, schools and organisations to come and enjoy.
They offer a learning and communities programme which allows everyone to get involved with the museum – whether it be taking part in a Victorian washday, learning new crafts or reminiscing with memory boxes. You can pop into their cafe or purchase a souvenir in the museum shop on your visit. FREE admission is offered and Salford Museum and Art Gallery welcomes all children accompanied by a responsible adult.
