The Harris has large collections of paintings, sculpture, textiles, costume, glass and ceramics, as well as the Story of Preston gallery which brings the history of the town to life.

We fill the largest gallery space in Lancashire with an exciting programme of exhibitions, and have a national reputation for our contemporary art shows.
