Gorgeuus. Do not miss this while in London! Easy to access by tube. We'll worth the visit and recommend to everyone to visit and explore the river Thames.

There is no fee to enter parts of the museum, which given how expensive London is…its nice to get a break. We only saw one part of it because we ran out of time having visited other tourist attractions in London. It seemed that there was a lot of open spaces with no art. I realize art is in the... More

I only rarely go to the Tate Modern but this Matisse cut-Outs exhibition was well worth the wait. I'm tempted to take out Membership now ! This is the one artist I have loved since a teenager and being able to see so much of his cut-out work all in one place and seeing its evolution was mind-blowing. The colour... More

I don't want to give a bad rating because the museum is amazing. But with all the old history in London this was not want I was looking for. I don't think I would have regretted not going as it wasn't anything life changing and several sculptures looked like poop. If you have time, go for a bit. But don't... More

Once again at Tate Modern, this time to see the Matisse 'Cut Outs' exhibition. This is a simply breath-taking collection of some of the final work in Matisse's life when he was unable to paint and so turned to cutting out shapes and forms. The film of him working and the 14 rooms of his work are inspirational and very... More

Tate Modern is a regular destination for me. The current exhibition of Matisse Cut Outs is a wonderful celebration of colour and forms. But even without visiting the exhibitions (which aren't expensive), it is worth a visit. There is always something there that is worth seeing. The building is also fascinating and feels spacious, so that you can always see... More

Two major exhibitions in one of London's best place to be for art. The Malevitch show is probably one of the most comprehensive gathering of artworks one can dream to see in a day. All the major phases of the work of this revolutionary artist are visible, the design and layout of the show is remarkable, certainly the attempt to... More
