The building itself is a work of art but there were very few exhibits on the day we decided to go. It was disappointing, to say the least, I was expecting much more. It only... read more

I visited St Ives with my daughter &great grand daughter, & as they wanted to visit the Tate Gallery I went with them. It was all very nice with lots of information for those who wanted to know more, but unfortunately, although I love paintings, this did not appeal to me as much as I'd hoped it would. We spent...

Having spent a number of Summer holidays in and around the St. Ives area, it is always a pleasure to visit the Tate Gallery in the town. The exhibitions are always put together in a very professional manner

This a tough review to write to be honest I would recommend that you go for a duel ticket and take in the Barbara Hepworth museum but go to the Tate first we have been several times and generally go every two years, as the children are growing up they have found various exhibitions very engaging and we did go...

It only took us about ten to fifteen minutes to walk round and there was nothing we looked at that was really interesting or even worth mentioning.... More

Not into galleries, but this is a lovely building, and if like me you like the gift shop bit best, you can go in without having to pay admission and also use their loos. If you do pay admission, for an extra £3 you can also go to The Barbara Hepworth museum

We were there in 2006 and really got a fantastic tour. The regularly scheduled guide for some reason was not available. The replacement person we got was the gentleman whose job it was to select the visiting artwork! As one might imagine, he was extremely knowledgeable about the various pieces on display then.

Ventured to the beautiful beach front gallery only to discover that it's closed until Saturday May 26, 2016. The gift shop is open and features lots of books and traditional gallery gift shop items. The building is quite attractive and the setting is spectacular as it sits just across a roadway from an expansive Cornish beach. Heavy construction is in... More

I visited St Ives and the Tate Gallery over a long Weekend back in 2008. St Ives is beautiful and it's filled with many creative, bohemian little shops. Tate Gallery has a nice collection of art but needs more investment and time to make it more presentable for potential locals and tourists interested in visiting their gallery.
