As you travel to London, it is a known fact that museums are free. We gave that a shot and went to Tate Modern. The infrastructure is excellent, good space, swings for children outside. The day we went, it rained. It gave us more time...More

Great views from the new wings' top, worth to go up there. Besides that: always good art, and things you question as art very close together and thus inspiring.

This was my first visit to Tate Modern. The building is absolutely amazing and a really good example of brutalist architecture. The art was a little out of my league but just being in such an imposing building was great. The highlight for me was...More

Look, you're either into this or you aren't, there's no in-between. It's in a striking facility on the south bank of the THames, and of course it's free. I go to art galleries everywhere we go, loving pre-modern art, what some would call, or deride,...More

Being an engineer I enjoyed the Tate modern art museum because the building use to be a large factory of some sort, even still has some cranes in the building. I liked the large rooms in which the art was displayed. There is even a...More

Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some
time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved
browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street,
foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old
foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest

The Tate is a free museum, however, the Picasso display was worth the money. To my knowledge, there were no discounts.

I agree with the other answers. There is absolutely nothing for a 3 yr old in the Tate Modern - don't go there !
