Salford Museum and Art Gallery is a hidden gem. Situated close to the centre of Manchester it has been open as a museum since 1850, and continues to offer a varied programme of exhibitions and activites to this day. Many people remember visiting Lark Hill Place when they were growing up and 'The Street' is still in the museum now.
Salford Museum and Art Gallery has two permanent galleries, Lark Hill Place and The Victorian Gallery. The museum also has The Lifetimes Gallery which changes annually and three temporary exhibition spaces.
Lark Hill Place is a wonderful recreation of a typical northern street during Victorian times. You can visit the shops and houses which include a chemist, a toy shop, a grocer and a blacksmith.
