The Harris Museum & Art Gallery is a Preston City Council Service.
We are proud guardians of our founders’ intention, inscribed on the outside of the building which states that:
‘The mental riches you may here acquire abide with you always’
Since 1893, The Harris has enriched the lives of our visitors and the local community by creating links between people, collections and exhibitions, by celebrating creativity and stimulating learning … something that continues today!
Our vision is to extend our reputation as an outstanding museum and art gallery that is distinctive, ambitious, audience-focused and open to change.
