This museum is in the heart of London and should be experienced. The whole structure is HUGE and worth the admissions charge. The special exhibition was perfectly curated and shown. Everything flowed so well that each area made sense in the larger picture of the structure. Adored it!

Huge waste of space that could be better used for actual art.

Large building with lots of space for exhibits, free parts of museum require some navigation between different areas due to escalators being closed off for paid parts.

My friend and I really like art so his mum took us here and we loved it. A definite recommendation. Here is one of the must-check-out pictures below.

Wow - what a prolific artist Picasso was! It was really quite exciting seeing these works by him in reality. I prepared for this visit with my 8 and 11 year olds by getting a couple of kids books out on Picasso. So, it was fun to know that once, when the son of a family friend of his bit him, he bit back - hard! We also took drawing pads and pencils, so that we could stop half way through the 10 rooms of art works and try a go at either copying or being inspired by the art we were looking at. This was a good break. The audio guides were pitched at a little older than my two, but they liked having their own headphones/devices nonetheless. It certainly broadened their minds I think.

I have visited the Tate Modern a number of times. With a lot of modern art you will either love it or hate it!. On this occasions I loved it!

I have never seen the Turbine Hall so busy – the hall has been carpeted throughout, lots of three seater swings installed along with a huge silver pendulum ball. The three seater swings are meant to encourage sharing and interaction between visitors, but we did not witness this occurring! Like good English citizens we queued and waited for a swing to be completely free. The swings also extend out beyond the building, but it was raining heavily outside, so we did not go there.

On this visit was also explored some of the new Blavatnik Building with its harsh concrete internal architecture. The highlight was a visit to the viewing terrace on floor 10 which has spectacular 360-degree views of the London Skyline – you can enjoy a drink and snacks on the viewing terrace, but only limited seating available (and no tables).
