Museums and galleries
Salford has a proud cultural and creative heritage. The city's range of museums and galleries combine the old with the new to provide opportunities for visitors, local people and families to take part.
Salford Museum and Art Gallery is an intriguing mix of Victorian and 20th century architecture. With the popular permanent attractions of The Victorian Gallery and Lark Hill Place, as well as the ever changing exhibitions, there is always something for everyone at Salford Museum and Art Gallery, from hands-on activities and workshops to modern art!
Salford Local History Library is also situated at Salford Museum, popular for family history research, delving into the history of houses, school projects and community heritage in Salford.
The award winning Ordsall Hall re-opened in May 2011 following a two year £6.5 million restoration project. Salford's Grade 1 listed Tudor manor house was first recorded in 1177. Today, it is an engaging heritage experience. Surrounded by landscaped grounds, it boasts hands on exhibitions, immersive room settings and a small cafe. The hall also provides activities and workshops for children and adults throughout the year.
These cultural venues are managed by Salford Community Leisure.
