Took my 3 grown up kids to see the Warhol exhibition. I am a huge Pop Art fan and I like a lot of what Warhol did. He was a real innovator and some of this was on show, it was his work based on his advertising including his magazine and tv adverts. Some of it I was unaware of... More

This museum was a little out of my comfort zone, since I'm not into modern art, but it is another free and amazing place to visit when in Liverpool.

The presentation and displays we found to be disappointing and it is very much the poor relation of the Tate in London. We were so disappointed that we decided NOT to go and see the Warhol exhibition.

We went to see the Mondrian exhibition which was amazing. The member of staff that was in the exhibition room was fantastic, knowledgeable, engaged and really really friendly. Highly recommend.

Great gallery of modern pieces in the brilliant Albert Dock area. Had a fantastic feel about it. We were with three children and there was a fantastic hands on mid-term program which kept them entertained for several hours.

We were so looking forward to being over-awed by the exhibits having heard great things about The Tate for so long-but,sorry,we were left feeling rather flat.To be fair there were sections closed off as filming was taking place,and I think we were expectant of seeing works by the grand masters(as in Glasgow&Edinburgh Art Galleries) but the work exhibited here is...

My review is from someone who doesn't really get what the Tate is all about. Contemporary art maybe? I have visited the London one and felt the same meh feeling too.

How fortunate that when we were in Liverpool the Andy Warhol exhibition had just opened. A must see for modern art lovers! The rest of the gallery was ok, not as good as London Tate modern but still interesting for a free walk around and a browse on a rainy day.

If you like modern art this is no doubt a great place but unless you understand why a bicycle leaning against a wall is "art" I would give it a miss. The place itself was large, clean and airy with a decent coffee shop too.
