Education centre

Located outside the centre of Birkenhead, the Williamson Art Gallery stands at the core of the Wirral Museums Service, offering more space than any other in its purpose-built galleries.

The Williamson houses one of the best art collections in the North West of England in its beautifully proportioned galleries. Paintings of all sorts, especially British watercolours and work by local artists, join highlights of the decorative arts collections like Liverpool Porcelain and Birkenhead's own contribution to the Arts & Crafts Movement, the Della Robbia Pottery.

The Williamson also offers a café, Shop and a Community Gallery. There will be more temporary exhibitions to see. There is also an annual Wirral Spring Open Exhibition.

The café, run by Best Bites, is an employment project for people with disabilities, which has already enjoyed great success elsewhere in the borough.

The shop features the work of local craftspeople, including potters, textile artists, jewellers and photographers.

There will also be rooms featuring other parts of the permanent collection, including ship models from the area, focusing on Cammell Laird shipbuilders and their contribution to marine history, the Mersey Ferries and the variety of vessels that used the River Mersey when it was at its busiest.

Accessibility - Ramped access at front of building and all galleries on one level; accessible toilet available.

Venue Hire
The Williamson is also used for a wide variety of meetings, events and concerts, most particularly using the excellent Steinway concert grand piano.
Activities in all the museums are supported by the Friends organisation, including the private views to exhibitions, purchases for the collections, costs of conservation. 2005 marked the 20th season of Sunday Serenades, an annual season of Sunday afternoon concerts promoted at the Williamson and the Priory from May to September. The first Sunday lecture season has just finished and was a resounding success.
