We visited Tate liverpool specifically because of the temporary jackson pollock exhibit. My five year old had been learning about Pollock and his work and was desperate to see. She was in awe. The exhibit was brilliant. We also perused the other galleries which are superbly structured.(and free to visit!) . Tickets are charged for special exhibits, such as the... More

Went in here with a couple of friends when visiting Liverpool recently. It is a standard modern art gallery, but has some old paintings as well, which were impressive to see at close quarters.. It was interesting to stroll around, but as we are not great modern art experts, I have to say that some of the exhibits were not... More

Fabulous modern art on display in the permanent galleries and this is my third visit for a special exhibition - this time Jackson Pollock, brilliant! Makes my Tate membership go even further than just the London galleries.

I know it's free to visitors, but if it wasn't, I would have asked for my money back. Coming from an 'arty' family, I know what art I like and don't like. However, I believe most of the artwork in the Tate museum at Albert Docks is ridiculous. I was looking for the hidden cameras from 'You've been Framed'. With... More

Whilst in Liverpool the Jackson Pollock exhibition was a must see. Beautifully displayed and presented the pieces are interesting and the accompanying information informative with the majority on display from the latter years of the artists life. The free galleries are worth a look, however, you can understand why they are free....very hit and miss indeed. Overall, an enjoyable visit... More

I saw Glen Ligon and Jackson Pollock exhibition at the Tate Liverpool. It is a phenomenal collection of American art history with stories that are not often told. It is a must see.

well I can really say that the windows overlooking the River Mersey have an extraordinary beauty not matched by many of the paintings, but there are great curator concepts here and many interesting things to see. Incredible for children, from the actual exhibits to their own painting centre and then a free lunch for a child when you eat there... More

Always love the special exhibitions at the Tate Liverpool and this one doesn't disappoint. Beautifully displayed and fantastically interesting pieces from this particular period of the artist's work. Staff all cherry and helpful. Very good cafe too for brunch, coffee and/ or lunch. Good range of choices at very reasonable prices. Well done Tate Liverpool again.

...and book onto the guided tour, it was really good (thanks Lee!). And if you have small children the Pollock painting activity is a must! I haven't been for probably 10 years but will not be leaving it so long before returning.
