Tate Modern, London

3.9
#11 of 236 in Museums in London
Tate Modern is one of the world's vanguards of modern and contemporary art. Installations and exhibits here change periodically, so check to see what's on display before you visit. Past installations have included a giant tuba hanging from the ceiling and diatribes playing through speakers. You'll also encounter art that's more historical, yet still modern. The Poetry and Dream gallery contains Surrealist works, Structure and Dream presents abstract art, and Energy and Process focuses on Arte Povera--a radical modern art movement that took place in Italy from 1967-1972. To learn more about the galleries' highlights, take one of the daily free tours lasting about 45 minutes.

  • Great art museum. I could spend there hours and hours just walking around. The museum is composed by two different buildings connected to each other by "bridge". Wonderful city view from the top of the museum at the viewing bar. Good to visit for families, friends and also alone. Artworks from famous paintings (Picasso, Money,and so on) to modern art. Entrance free (except for specific and temporary exhibitions)
  • Yeah, a great place to wander around. Especially on your own. Many floors, many people, many artworks to see. Nice view from the highest floor! I'd say it's cozy. Even though it's freaking spacious.
