Wanted something to do, and from the outside this art gallery looks big, minus the library. Talking to the receptionist who said "I love this place, there is 3 floors full of art", 3 floors is not what we got. Walking through to the gallery, on the first floor there was 3 paintings propped against the wall and a black... More

Recently I visited this art gallery, it's next to the central library, Blackpool and really I missed all these days, because I am a regular to the library! Without special exhibitions, not much to see here, just some paintings only. But for Blackpool it's fine!

A great little gallery, and well worth a visit. They had a display of neon art when we visited, but I understand that they have a series of exhibitions. It's next to the main library. It's not that big, so great for an hour's diversion when in Blackpool. In the heart of town, too, so easy to get to.

This is well worth a visit. They show a very good variety and I have enjoyed many visits. It does not take up much of your time,.So if you have a bit of time on your hands have a wander in and take a look you will be surprised

I adore Neon lighting and so this was a 'must see' for me, but it was also a big hit with the rest of the family. The staff were so knowledgeable and explained the various exhibits - which made all the difference. Even just to wander and absorb all the colour would be fab. Tracey Emin has a piece here... More

The NEON exhibition is a wonderful collection of installations. We enjoyed looking at the exhibits so much that we are now looking to purchase one for our dinning room.

The gallery is a bit on the small side but if you're into creative uses of neon then the Neon exhibition is worth a look with some good art from famous artists. The upstairs was a bit disappointing as it's quite small and just filled with a few old photos but considering the entry was free it's hard to be... More

The gallery was nice enough but somewhat spoilt by the staffs condescending and some what insulting comments on our leaving. As a young open minded group of 12 individuals who enjoy art, we went to the gallery to see the neon exhibition and upon leaving overheard insulting comments about ourselves, criticising where we're from and the way we looked.
