The amount to see was a little reduced when I visited due to two exhibitions having closed just days before. However, the main collection was excellent with a wide variety of interesting pieces by a large number of different artists. It was well curated and the information about each piece was clear but not over done, encouraging you to look... More

Piles of rubbish in a gallery do not make them art. There was a very interesting video from Syria but, apart from that, there was quite a lot of naff exhibits.

Decided much against my senses to visit Tate to see amongst other things "Tracey Emin Bed". I really dont know why I went. The whole gallery was full of the most utter rubbis (In my view) The bed thing is a disgrace and hope Tate didnt pay for it? I think of all the specialist machinery required in our childrens...

I found this gallery full of rediculous, so called art works. After seeing the many fine art works in the more traditional gallerys in the UK, this one was a disappointment. Thank goodness it is free.

Call me traditional but the vast majority of the 'artwork' at the Tate Liverpool is absolute rubbish. The old masters would be turning in their grave. I must be missing something but how anyone would pay for the exhibits is beyond me. Just lucky it was free entry.

Always pop in when in Liverpool. Love the ever changing collections. Personally love the exhibitions. Worth a couple of hours of your time.

The place was not even clean with a pile of sweepings behind two of the doors (yes - I know it was an 'installation'...) If you want to participate and create your own 'art' how about a 'workshop' with two of the trip adviser questions below: Do you recommend this attraction for beach lovers? Take your own bag of sand... More

We did not realise the gallery was free, no one pointed this out and the person on the desk was miserable to say the least, £12 was a lot each to see the Bacon exhibition and to be honest was not that impressed, the building is well designed, good access, but it needs to show correct pricing, show that the...
