    About Beverley Art Gallery

    Beverley’s Museum and Art Gallery opened to the public on 23rd August 1910. Fuelled by popular appeal and a firm conviction that they served an education and morally uplifting purpose, public galleries had been springing up throughout the country, particularly since the 1870s.

    The idea to fund a public library with museum and art gallery was first put forward in 1902 when John Champney, a native of Beverley, approached the Town Council with the offer of funding. Further funds were donated by William Spencer to buy the land.

    The public library opened in 1906 together with a ‘picture gallery’ where the portraits of both benefactors were proudly displayed. Four years later, Champney’s scheme was completed when Beverley museum and art gallery was formally opened.
