About the Museum

The Lady Lever Art Gallery has stood at the heart of the picturesque village of Port Sunlight for a hundred years. Built by William Hesketh Lever in dedication to his late wife, Elizabeth, the Gallery houses the best of Lever’s impressive personal art collection.

Paintings by some of Britain’s most influential artists are on display, from Lord Leighton and Sir Joshua Reynolds to George Romney and JMW Turner. The Gallery also houses an internationally-renowned Pre-Raphaelite art collection, featuring works by Burne-Jones, Holman Hunt, Millais and Rossetti.

The Lady Lever’s South End galleries house the best collection of Wedgwood jasperware in the world, one of the finest collections of Chinese porcelain in Europe and outstanding 18th century paintings, furniture and sculpture. These exceptional collections have been redisplayed following a £2.8m major restoration programme, which was completed in spring 2016.
