This wing explores the development of abstract art since the early 20th century, encompassing cubism, geometric abstraction and minimalism.
The Bankside Power Station was built as a ‘cathedral of power’ in 1963, but closed in 1981. It reopened as one of Europe’s finest modern art galleries in 2000. The Turbine Hall is 35m high.
The Tate boat, decorated by coloured spots inspired by Damien Hirst, travels every 40 minutes from Tate Modern - the world's most visited art gallery in its renovated power station - to Tate Britain.
It's great architecture, the amazing permanent collection, the installations in the impressive turbine hall and the major exhibitions
Late nights on Friday would be a nice way to wind down the week. And it's free entry.
Go to see permanent exhibitions they are fantastic.
What was the Bankside Power Station now takes advantage of the Turbine Hall for large installations. Be sure to check their website before visiting for new exhibitions.
go see the view from the bar at the top
A wonderfully British take on Modern Art - don't pay for the exhibits that cost - most of the floors and the excellent Turbine Hall are free to visit
The Infinity Room is a must see when visiting Yayoi Kusama's highly anticipated retrospective of her art work at Tate Modern (from 9th February – 5th June 2012)
TRAVEL FACT: Enjoy free admission to a broad range of art collections and genres mapped out in a contemporary building.
The most visited modern art gallery in the world, Tate Modern features a vast collection of art and exhibitions of all shapes and sizes. Go to the bar at the top for a great view of London.
Try and swindle your way into the members bar on level 6 for a drink and take in an awesome view of London.
Make sure to check out the surrealism exhibit.
It's difficult to remember how this old converted power station used to be before the Tate moved in in 2000, so successful has it been! One of the best view of the river, and some fab modern art too.
You can enter Tate Modern for free except for major exhibitions or events. Tote Modern open from 10:00am until 6:00pm on week days.
Could spend days in here!! Fantastic art and beautiful setting opposite the Millenium Bridge and St Pauls Cathedral
The incredible collection of contemporary art at the Tate Modern is always inspiring.
We like the Soviet propaganda posters in room 11. Sip a cocktail in the bar overlooking the view of the Thames and St Pauls Cathedral.
Try and go on a Friday or Saturday when Tate doesn't close till 10pm. You won't feel rushed when trying to cover every exhibit in the massive building. Great views of the Thames as well!
The rotating exhibitions are great, but make sure you have time to explore the permanent collection. Look for Gunther Uecker's "White Field", one of our favorites.
Lie down in the Turbine Hall and look up... then jump up and head for another icon, The Table Cafe, just behind The Tate on Southwark Street.
Get the Thames Clipper from Tate to Tate - amazing views of both galleries from the River!
if you prefer it quiet, go first thing, 10am - plenty of free art to enjoy
Incredible buildings for a museum. A bit crowded considering it's free, which makes a visit a bit stressful and it's hard to go in depth with the works
Members bar. 6th floor. Wine. gin. Food. View of thames and St Pauls. Best view in London...
You are one of the 4.7million art-lovers who visit the Tate galleries each year.
Free Wifi at level 7
Definitely recommend becoming a member. Brilliant way to finish a visit to Borough market and a walk along the Thames
not that impressed with big black box, could have been darker or maybe one of those sound dead rooms.
An old factory used as a modern art gallery right by the river. Can't get any better than that!
Amazing modern art! Must go roof top cafe/restaurant amazing view!
Huge hall way when u enter and there are lots of gallery and a cafe
Some pieces are world-renowned in the cool power plant-turn-to-gallery building. Tate Modern is newest one. Consider visiting other 3 older Tate museums also!
Электростанция переделанная в музей. В залах галереи есть произведения Кандинского, Малевича и Шагала. Тэйт Модерн размещает живописные полотна не в хронологическом порядке, а группирует их по темам.
Норошая галерея. Есть что посмотреть. Есть картины P.Picasso.
El café Mocha es el mejor que probé. Mejor que Starbucks y a solo 2,10£
Primera planta bien, muchas chavalas. La segunda, regular. Pero es que en la tercera, ni una eh?
