    Unbelievably rubbish, taking our time to explore the place we were in and out in 5 minutes. Good job it's free...

    I love this museum. It is on the coast side in Margate. Family friendly. Not too much crowded. Enjoyed Jeremy Deller's show.

    The car park for the Turner is not at the front as expected. Only parking for disabled & RNLI. Go up the road then turn left or there's parking up and right 80p per hour.

    Explore this stunning museum designed by Sir David Chipperfield. Enjoy how the light changes in the larger room upstairs as dusk approaches.

    It doesn't take long to visit, and there is limited gallery space compared to other space in the building, but it's free and interesting based on most recent exhibitions.

    Excellent little gallery, the current Mondrian exhibition is superb. Sadly the rest of Margate doesn't have a lot else to offer

    Such a novelty to enjoy some great contemporary art with the backdrop of the sea. A lovely building, inside and out.

    Always worth a visit though I gave Tracey Emin's crappy drawings a miss. I wish they had kept this exhibit from Revealed, based on Turner's supposed last words "the sun is god". Arcadia was great too.

    Don't bother going, waste of time! Tracy emmins work is not art!

    Tracey Emins exhibition is currently showing (as of June 2012) - check it out, like the drawings of a mad person !

    Small but perfectly formed art gallery, leading the Margate revival

    Visited the new Turner Contemporary Gallery with my son Callum. Loved it all, but the highlight ironcally was the beautiful round window outlook onto the Thames Estuary. Natural art.
