Tate Modern Tours - page 3

Tate Modern
Perched on the banks of River Thames, Tate Modern is the epicenter of London’s contemporary art scene. It’s a culture lover’s paradise and one of the world’s largest modern art museums, complete with cutting edge works, thought-provoking installations, and dramatic think pieces.

The Basics
Many visitors explore the museum independently, but taking a private guided tour means you can benefit from the expertise of an experienced art critic. Combine your tour with a visit to the nearby Tate Britain museum by hopping on the scenic Tate Boat, which runs between the two sites every 40 minutes during gallery opening times. Or, choose a London Pass and enjoy access to dozens of other London attractions in addition to the museum. Alternatively, admire the striking Tate Modern façade on a London sightseeing tour or Thames River cruise.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Entrance to the museum is free, but donations are appreciated and ticket prices for special exhibitions vary.
  • Visitor facilities include restrooms, a coat check, gift shops, a café, and a restaurant.
  • Tate Modern is wheelchair accessible with lifts and ramps are available on all floors.

How to Get There
Tate Modern is located on the Thames River’s southern bank, opposite St. Paul’s Cathedral. The museum is easy to reach on foot, either by crossing the Millennium Bridge from the north bank or strolling along the riverfront from the Southbank entertainment district. The closest tube stations are Southwark, Mansion House, and Blackfriars. Visitors to the nearby Tate Britain museum can reach Tate Modern by cruising across Thames River on the Tate Boat.

When to Get There
Tate Modern is open year-round from 10am to 6pm from Sunday to Thursday and until 10pm on Friday and Saturday. The museum can get busy in summer, so plan to arrive early or opt for a weekday visit during this time. Don’t miss the spring and autumn Museums at Night festival, when the museum hosts a range of special events and parties after dark.

Modern Masterpieces at Tate Modern
The museum’s vast permanent collection includes works by iconic artists such as Cézanne, Bonnard, Matisse, Picasso, Rothko, Dalí, Pollock, Warhol, and Bourgeois. The grand centerpiece of Tate Modern is the enormous Turbine Hall, where specially commissioned art installations have included headline-grabbing works such as Ai Weiwei's Sunflower Seeds and Olafur Eliasson’s The Weather Project
Address: Bankside, London SE1 9TG, England
Hours: Open every day except December 24-26.
Admission: Entry is free except for major exhibitions.
