  • One of the best exhibitions I have been to. Well planned and superbly put together. Definitely a must see for 20C British Art lovers 
  • Brilliant. The Matisse exhibition was enjoyable and there is a good variety of old and new. The art gym on the top floor kept the kids busy for a couple of hours. Highly recommended!
  • Couple of really nice floors of free modern art, often with a paid exhibition to boot. The free works don't seen to rotate much, but well worth an trip of you're in the city centre or Albert Dock.
  • I have been to so many exhibitions here, by artists I have heard of and ones I hadn't but they were all outstanding. It is a great place for a gallery too due to the amazing location and the adaptability of the building and history of the docks. There are also lots of place to eat nearby.
  • Can enjoy a good time in Tate Liverpool, enjoy the window views overlooking outside too
  • The best art museum that I never been. And it's free. A little small but OK. The store was the best
