Managed by the University of Manchester, the Gallery houses some of the greatest collections of modern and historic art found in the United Kingdom, The collections, which consist of 55,000 items, also include rare wallpaper designs, historic prints and textiles. The Gallery was founded by Robert Darbishire in 1889. Today, the Gallery is one of the most visited attractions in Manchester, accommodating thousands of visitors each year.
