Manchester Art Gallery
After a £35 million renovation, The Manchester Art Gallery has recently opened its doors again.

A gallery for special exhibitions is a new addition and it opens with Inhale / Exhale by Michael Craig-Martin in which vast representations of everyday objects are painted on the wall as if thrown from a canvas opposite. With the large range of flights to Manchester now available, you can experience all Manchester has to offer.
