My husband and I went here I have been before but my husband had not. I am the one who is the art lover but my husband really enjoyed the Tate for his first gallery visit. We over heard one of the tour guide speaking with a family who had children with them and were very impressed at the communication... More

Sometimes the point is that people miss the point!! The bicycle for 5 is a real talking point ( or if you are alone it is a thinking point) the table is so simple that you or I can do it today at home! But WE haven't and won't. Art is good if you remember and talk about it, if... More

It was good to visit the Tate as we never managed to fit it in last time we went to Liverpool. The layout is good and there were some interesting exhibits. Modern art is something I struggle with a little bit so I was very pleased to see that the cards explaining the link between the different art works in... More

Truth be told, I went along to this with a friend who was interested in things like this. I didn't think it was my "thing" and really didn't think I would enjoy it however I found it very informative and interesting! There are talks throughout the day beside various paintings and the staff certainly know what they are talking about!... More

Visited here recently and wanted to know what all the hype was about In my opinion this was not art. I don't see how some blobs on a white piece of paper can be classed as art only if I was missing something. If you want to go to a good art gallery in liverpool go to the Walker art... More

Great exhibitions and lovely views too! Worth checking online to see that the temporary works of art are to your liking though as I see from previous reviews some art is not to everyone's taste! Great shop and café too.

I always enjoy coming to Tate Liverpool - the staff are wonderful, helpful, enthusiastic & knowledgeable. I don't always enjoy the art but if you know you don't like modern art, don't bother coming here. This time around, I enjoyed a lot of the Leonora Carrington exhibition but didn't get much from Cathy Wilkes (the two rooms you pay for).... More
