  • Thoroughly enjoyed the Constellations exhibition with interesting pieces by Kline and Rothko as well as lesser known artists. The exhibition is well curated and the staff friendly. Also watched an informative and engaging talk about Emin's bed and the Blake etchings. There are large lockers in the basement that take a pound coin, ideal for leaving bags as you explore the gallery and the docks.
  • There are a good number of reasons to visit Liverpool, this museum is one of the big ones. lots of awesome artwork, talks from knowledgeable guides and the fantastic Albert docks. I love this place!
  • A great gallery with excellent facilities. I've been several times not only to wander around and see the art, but also to use the cafe and facilities and to browse the little shop. Never been disappointed and my daughter loves it too. Recommended.
  • Only used the restaurant due to time constraints. Lunch menu had a wide choice options for adults and children. Good value and good food. Fast service even though they were busy.
  • Newer part of London based, firmly guided and functionally designed Tate museum "chain" in historic dock area. - Husky tiled magazines saved from their ruined early 80's oblivion. Very touristy hood nowadays, but this contemporary museum stands out. Must-see, many-sided Yves Klein retrospective that closed in early March. Ellsworth Kelly during the spring 2017.
