I enjoy modern art museums, and this one is a must go. By the Thames, one can enjoy spring and summer afternoons on the bank, the museum is not far from the city, the best way to get there is to cross the bridge, as there is no underground station on the museum side. The museum offers different levels with... More

This was a brilliant way to spend a rainy morning, alone in London. There were so many iconic pieces all of which were free, the staff were friendly and helpful and the building itself, blew me away. A must see.

An art gallery I have wanted to visit for many years and finally, today, I got there. Pleased with wheelchair access, although beware of the queue at the lifts. In the exhibitions, works are varied to cater to all tastes (along with fitting in with the feel of the Tate) and ample notes are accompanying the art work. Given the... More

Booked tickets for the Matisse Cut Outs exhibition and was not disappointed. Very busy as expected but with a bit of patience was able to enjoy all the displays which were well laid out. Absolutely phenomenal to see them all "in the flesh"!

The biggest and best space you will probably find in Europe, the views over the Thames and St Paul Cathedral is a plus

Great industrial architecture, permanent exhibition with many world class art pieces and all this for free - at least the permanent exhibition. This place is definitly worth a visit.

If you're visiting London , Tate Modern is a must seen! Even if you're not into arts , just walking around and looking at so many different things is fascinating !

This was quite an interesting see while in London. I'm usually not a big art museum goer, but this one might have converted me. There are of course the pieces that don't make much sense to those of us who haven't taken any art classes, and then there are some that will take your breath away. In particular, I extremely...

A really good collection of modern art. The minimal design of the museum fits right in. A highly recommended highlight of London

I liked the quick look I had at the architecture of the museum but found the art pieces themselves disappointing. I was unable to see most of the exhibits due to the absolute crowding of people but I suppose that's because schools were on holiday when I went.
