  • Always has interesting exhibitions and it's free (excluding special exhibitions). It also has a very reasonably priced cafe and in a great location. You can easily spend all day here.
  • Good art museum went with uni course mates. Nice art work and right next to Liverpool docks. loved it!
  • Take the curators tour if you get the chance. It's nice to get a sense of context about the art you are looking at. Special exhibition for Liverpool biennial was thought provoking, tour group had a brief discussion on the merits of one of the pieces.
  • First time at Tate Liverpool for the Yves Klein exhibition. V helpful and knowledgeable curator. Will visit again with more time to spend there.
  • Great building and great art - sculptures & paintings. Lockers for storing bulky bags, coats etc. Well worth a visit even if your not an art buff. Also close to many cafés and restaurants.
