What we offer

The Victoria Art Gallery is the free public art gallery for Bath and North East Somerset. The Gallery's collections range from the 15th century to the present day and were formed mainly by gift and bequest since the building first opened in 1900.

The upper gallery is displayed with three centuries of British paintings from Gainsborough and Turner to Sickert and Hodgkin. The lower galleries have an exciting and varied programme of exhibitions to cater for every taste. Artists past and present are featured, from big names such as the Impressionists through to young, up and coming regional artists.

We offer a range of visit options, from a teaching session to self-guided activities.

What makes us a great choice?

Our teaching sessions take place in the galleries and sometimes in our wet work room. We explore the collection and displays in a variety of creative ways.
