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.

This is by far the best attraction the Albert Docks. Based in a converted warehouse, the museum has a completely different feel to the other Tate museums in the UK. The range of art on offer is great and a good grounding for an introduction to modern art. Perhaps the best part of the Tate is the special exhibition centre.... More

The Tate Liverpool is quite different to the Tate modern, in fact they hardly seem related. Based over 4 floors of an old warehouse in the now renovated Albert docks with free entry on 3 floors and special exhibitions on the fourth. This modern art gallery is much smaller and less glamorous than its southern cousin, but perhaps there is... More

It is quite a large museum and you do need some time to properly browse through the collection of art. ..and objects and the permanent collections. The view from the upper levels, if you peek out from the window is also great. The cafe and the shop also need a mention here, as they stock good tea and books. Did... More

I am not into modern art but this gallery is fun and informative. The guides in each room were friendly and didn't mind that I found some of the pieces a little funny - especially the sewing machine wrapped up and the pile of blankets. A great way to spend an hour or so at the docks. the toilets in... More

Thank you for putting on this exhibition. I visited Tate Contemporary in Ramsgate last week and saw "Part 1". The two shows complement each other very well and I am now a much more "educated" person. Thank you again for the show.

Visited To see Mondrian exhibition and thought it was different from the "standard exhibition "as concentrated , for good reasons, on his studio. Sound guide definitely worth using . Although it is quite a large museum it does not have members room unlike both Tate's in London Did not like some of the permanent collection but obviously that is a... More
