Tate Modern, London

4.0
#9 of 252 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. Our London holiday planner makes visiting Tate Modern and other London attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • As a fan of modern art what better place to spend time being inspired. At Tate Modern you can truly appreciate and witness the evolution of artistic thought processes. I particularly appreciate Mark Rothko's contemplation pieces - the subdued lighting gives the space an ethereal, almost religious feeling and the sheer scale of the canvases demands you spend time just being still, looking and contemplating. An awe inspiring place. Loved it.
  • Great place, amazing views front he observation deck at the top. The bar wasn't too expensive for the location. Free entry donations are asked for. Gift shop had lots of things. The art itself was also nice. Definitely worth a visit while in London.
  • Great place to see modern art in all its various forms. With a nice cafe there you could spend the whole day looking and interacting with art. Great for kids to get to see some of the exhibits and exhibition. You better be ready to spend the day on your feet with only stops for teas and coffees.
  • Tate Modern is my idea of spirituality. The permanent collections are mind blowing. My favourite is the dimly lit Rothko room (according to Rothko’s instructions). It’s also awesome for kids. If you’re visiting London this is a must see. I LOVE YOU TATE ♥️♥️♥️
