Time Out says
Art and history combine at this adventurous gallery. It's worth the journey if you're not nearby
One of the best things about his rather wonderful gallery is the way it combines an extensive art collection with those of social and natural history, working as gallery and museum and archive.
Consequently, you can take in photography, geology, decorative art, specimens and artefacts from all over the world, and still see a new show by a contemporary painter. Touring work, new commissions and local artists all get their share of gallery time and space, making Gallery Oldham one of the best on offer outside the confines of the city centre.
