About
Taste Liverpool is the most visited gallery of visual art outside London and home to the national collection of modern and contemporary art in the north of England which is free to view. Displays change often so there is always something new to see. If you are visiting in Summer 2019 you’ll be able to see the first major UK exhibition of American artist Keith Haring. Haring was inspired by graffiti, pop art and underground club culture. Visitors can enjoy more than 85 artworks including large, vibrant paintings, drawings and sculptures. We have a Changing Places toilet, a shop and café located on the ground floor. Families have great days out at Tate Liverpool. We have free activities each day with additional activities in some school holidays. We have a designated family space, buggy parking, baby-changing facilities and you can breastfeed wherever you feel comfortable. We look forward to welcoming you to our gallery.

Weird
Oct 2021
Weird unknown modern artists....really not to my taste...but enjoyed bymy daughter and granddaughter. Very spaced out. The spider bronze was recognizable, as we had seen works by the same artist in Bilbao, but is "dead body" clothing or piles of bricks really art

A nice place to visit to avoid the very wet weather we encountered during our stay.
Situated over three floors the venue has free lockers to leave your bags and coats to save you dragging them around.
Some very good displays of art to enjoy with a nice cafe to have a coffee in at the end!

Oversweetened
Nov 2021 • Couples
We saw the Lucian Freud exhibition and loved it. What we didn’t love at all was the catering in the Tate coffee shop. Extortionately priced pieces of virtually inedible, oversweetened cake served at a tantalisingly sedate pace. And why were absolutely all dietary options vegan?! We left with a truly awful aftertaste in our mouths.

Disappointing
Oct 2021 • Solo
Disappointing exhibits here. Only saw the free galleries but the art on display was dismal. If you like giant clothes hung up, maybe this is your thing, if you like paintings and drawings then avoid.
As well as this the number of pieces in display was poor, far too much free space that could be used in a better way.

I could have spent hours here! The Lucien Freud exhibition was brilliant and other displays were equally compelling. We had a lovely coffee and cookie in the coffee shop too!

Liverpool highlight

Paid exhibition - Lucian Freud - wonderful. Free collections - engaging. Bonus free Louise Bourgeois exhibition - stunning. Lovely use of the space, everything well displayed, great shop, nice cafe. Pretty much hitting all the marks.

Fabulous

Loved a walk around the Tate Gallery, very modern and spacious.
Nice gift shop on the ground floor, a little pricey though.

Tate doesn't fail to deliver
Oct 2021
It's small yet spaceous, it's at a wonderful location by the canal and it's free.
Moreover, it has Picasso, Klee, Matisse and so much more.
Elephant chooses to stand on your car is iconic.
Plus, it's free. Go!

Don McCullin (and Lucian Freud too)
Sep 2021
We’d visited a few times before, this time for Don McCullin and Lucian Freud.

We spent three times as long in the first. It was a fantastic show from start to finish, covering his whole career, self curated. The magazines film was a really good idea to capture the breadth of his work.

There was actually some colour – even he couldn’t photograph Cuba in monochrome. His landscapes at the end were black and white and very bleak.

Not to take away from the majesty of his photography, but you do wonder what he does for joy.

The Lucian Freud was a skip through his portraits with a few blockbusters but paled after Don McCullin.
