    Huge awesome museum locatedc on the Thames that houses a spectacular selection of Art. I was lucky enough to go during the Dali exhibition a few year back...it was amazing. Of Note...It's actually has 3 other locations.

    We visit Tate Modern every time we are in London. The permanent collection changes and there is always some interesting temporary exhibition. There is no admission fee. We also always visit the 7th floor restaurant for the reliably good menu and the excellent view.

    If you like modern art, this is a very exciting museum. There seems to always be something interesting happening outside the museum as well as inside.

    An apt building to house a great collection of modern masterpieces. The converted bankside power station is such an iconic building.

    Much more our speed than the National Gallery, the Tate is at the forefront of innovative art and design. Our favorite installation when we visited was "Thirty Pieces of Silver" by Cornelia Parker.

    One of the best museums in the world. An incredible building to visit, with a (hopefully) even more incredible extension being built. GO SEE IT! Free to get in, but the exhibitions cost a bit to get in. Really great bookshop. Food and drink will be far too expensive, like in any museum.

    The Tate Modern is not for everyone. If you're someone who scoffs at, say, a pile of bricks on the ground, you will not enjoy this museum. However, if you enjoy modern art, this museum is a must-see.

    Former Bankside Power Station and now the home to the Tate's Modern Art Collection. Really impressive conversion. Look for the roosting Peregrine Falcons on the chimney late in the summer.

    A bold setting for some of the world's most striking contemporary art. Opened in 2000, this former power station continues to rank in the U.K.'s top three tourist attractions - and best of all, aside from the temporary exhibitions, it's free to visit. Top tip: Tours for Two - for £50 each you can arrange to be taken on a tour of highlights of the collection, with your own private guide providing the commentary. It's also worth noting that the gallery is open until 10pm on Fridays and Saturdays - so head there after 6pm when the place empties of day trippers and soak up some art before dinner at a nearby Bermondsey restaurant.

    The Tate Modern is London's largest repository of modern art. It houses British and foreign works from 1900 to the present and is housed in a old power station. Its massive Turbine Hall is known for its special exhibits. Works here often fill entire rooms and are one of a kind. If you are a modern art lover, don't miss the Tate.

    The Rothko paintings alone would merit five stars for this flagship modern art museum, located in London's Bankside neighborhood. The most visited modern art museum in the world, their collection is outstanding, from early modern painting to post-modern videography. The building on the Thames' south bank is a paragon of high-modern architecture, and a visit here combines well with the Millennium Bridge and a trip to Saint Paul's Cathedral just across the way.

    Great entrance, fantastic art and good cafe with sympathetic service (in my experience with four lively children). More serious dining with great view over London and the 'wobbly' bridge to St Pauls.

    While not as edgy as the Saatchi Gallery, the Tate Modern is a large and impressive museum with several floors solely focusing on modern art. Inside, you can't miss the giant legged spider dominating the main room.

    From the Turbine Hall and its rotating exhibitions by big art stars to the permanent collection of modern art greats, to the restaurant overlooking the Thames and St. Paul's the Tate Modern is an art and design star of the Big Smoke. No two ways about it.

    Always changing. One of my favorite museums. If you are staying in the area for more than a few days check out the London drawing classes they host there. It is really great to be in the museum after hours creating art.

    Attracted to international contemporary art? What you'll find in the Tate Modern is always interesting, and with so many exhibitions on simultaneously, you're sure to be able to find something that hits the art sweet spot. Entry is free, though there is a fee for some special shows. Combine a visit with a walk along the Thames and you'll have a fine afternoon.

    Usually only in here for a special exhibition, and those are frequently very good. Nice vibe, but bit pretentious at the margins.

    The Tate is London's Modern Art Museum - a very impressive collection of 20th century art in a converted factory on the Themes. Features art from Picasso to Matisse, Dali, Pollock and Rothko, as well as some of the pop art greats like Warhol and Lichtenstein.

    The Tate Modern has such a lovely collection of modern art, and usually great rotating exhibitions. Like most London museums, the permanent collection is free. Paying the 10 pounds to see the special stuff is often worth it; they had a really special Rothko exhibition last year, for example, in which I spent a couple inspiring hours. The top floor restaurant/bar has great views of St. Paul's, a good wine list, and is reasonably priced. Definitely worth an apres-art stop.
