I visit the Tate in Liverpool every year. Sometimes I feel totally lost when viewing the art. This summer however I really enjoyed the exhibits. There were people of all ages walking around looking and experiencing all that was on offer. One thing that was really excellent was the use of the windows which look over the river and some... More

Managed to see a few Picasso, Miro, Dali works last time I visited. Always like the range and love the location. Will return again in near future no doubt.

I enjoyed some parts of Mondrian's work but overall this was not for me. There was not much on show and what there was, I found repetitive. The mock up of his room in Paris was unusual but not enough to justify the payment of the entrance fee! The Constellations on another floor was more interesting, particularly Modigliani's Peasant Boy.... More

Really enjoyed the Mondrian expo at Tate Liverpool. It is not big but has some really interesting works, reconstruction of his studio in Paris and materials from his studio in New York are fascinating! The rest of the gallery is well worth visiting too. We enjoyed some of the more modern works and the layout of the space on the... More

I've always wanted to visit the Tate and went into the free exhibit with an open mind. I'm glad it was free though because although some pieces were interesting, there were other pieces that just looked like my seven year old could have done a better job. In actual fact myself and my boyfriend came out of the Tate asking... More

I consider myself quite an artistic, creative person, but much of the work here, particularly the sculpture, wouldn't have looked out of place in a skip. You couldn't pay me to display it in my house. Upon entering, the first gallery on the ground floor consisted of ramps, and widely spaced pictures that my class of 6 year olds could... More

What is art, this is all I got from the Tate. I am sure experts will say I missed the point but some of the pieces would not have looked out of place in a skip. I found the whole experience very frustrating and found myself openly mocking some pieces as nothing more than school projects. Perhaps this was the... More

Some really interesting displays. I really enjoyed it. They also have cool exhibitions that change every so often. For example Alice and wonderland was on when I went. Can't believe it's free. Well worth a visit if you like art, and even if you don't, you'll still enjoy it.

It's a great little museum. The Constellations exhibit looks at the connections and the evolution of modern art. It was a great, very visual way of looking at history of art, very enjoyable. I strongly recommend a visit! Its location on the Albert Dock is also very convenient as part of a walk by the water.

By chance we were in Margate earlier this year and had the good fortune to see the Mondrian exhibition at the Turner Contemporary, and so when a couple of days in Liverpool were planned were delighted to have the opportunity to see more of his work, however compared to Margate this is a disappointment. Yes the reconstruction of his studio... More
