Atkinson Art Gallery

Atkinson Art Gallery Collection

More about

The Atkinson is the home of music, theatre, art, poetry, literature and history. Significant investment has been made in refurbishing the stunning 19th-century buildings, to create a really welcoming multi art-form venue with a strong contemporary feel. In October 2014 our new Egyptology Gallery opened, the new home of the Goodison Egyptology Collection, which has not been seen for over 40 years. In February 2015 the Atkinson redevelopment was completed, with the opening of our museum Between Land and Sea – 10,000 Years of Sefton’s Coast. It tells the story of Sefton and its dramatic maritime history as well as how it links to the rest of the world and has grown into one of the most popular tourist destinations. The Atkinson opens Monday–Saturday, 10am–5pm. The museum and gallery close at 4pm. We are open on Sundays from 11am to 4pm during school holidays; please see our website for more details.
