Mondrian and his studios visited on saturday was very interesting. Knowing little about Piet Mondrian on arrival I came away with a much better understanding of what his pictures are all about. Whilst the information cards were useful I was glad to have the excellent audio guide which gave much more in depth information in a clear and accessible manner.... More

If you're in the Albert Dock area of Liverpool, you should always visit the Tate. The collections may not be as extensive as those in London, but then the building just isn't as big. I go to Liverpool regularly and if there's a special exhibition on, I'll go and see it, as I am a Friend of the Tate. Another... More

I revisited the Tate in Liverpool to see the Mondrian exhibition. The Tate is in a fantastic location, has very good display areas if not as impressive as those in St Ives or London and the special and the permanent displays are always provocative, engaging and fun. A wonderful place. It is free except for the special exhibitions.

Booked to come to Liverpool when we discovered that the Mondrian exhibition showing his Paris studio was here & not in London. So glad we did. Not only did we have a wonderful guided tour by the Museum Curator of the exhibition (which we booked in advance, by serendipity it was on the day we had decided to visit) but... More

I went to see the Mondrian and Nasreen Mohamedi exhibition (one ticket gets you into both). Wow. Mohamedi's eye for detail and precision is breathtaking. The only criticism of the Tate exhibition is afterwards I wandered down to the Shop with an appetite to take-away some memorabilia, but there was nothing apart from 2 general books in which her work...

Set in the Albert Dock complex on the outer edge this is like many other galleries changing displays on a regular basis. Currently showing Mondrian exhibition (not free). Unless you're particularly interested in his work don't pay the fee. There are plenty of examples of his work and others in various forms in the gallery shop selling the usual overpriced... More

Tate Liverpool is housed in a converted warehouse in the Albert Docks. This provides an excellent facility for the themed displays of art which draw on the collection of the main London Tate Galleries. In addition when we visited there was a very comprehensive display of the life and work of Mondrian (charge for entry). The gallery was not crowded... More

This is a 'must see' for anyone interested in the life, career and chronological development of Piet Mondrian. As always Tate has produced a superb exhibition. Another excellent reason to visit this unusual venue in a great city.
