Sister museum to the Tate Britain, the Tate Modern museum is Britain’s national museum focusing on modern art from the 20th century onward.  Opened in 2000, the Tate Modern has an excellent collection that includes works from Dali, Monet, Picasso, and Warhol.    There are often strong temporary artwork displays occurring as well.  Outstanding views can be found on the top floor of the Thames River and St. Paul’s Cathedral to the north.

A fantastic and cheap way to spend an afternoon-- don't come here with impatient people, because it's very chill.
Favorite bit: The Kiss statue.

Tip: Expect to pay more to see special exhibits.

One of my favorite museums anywhere. For me, the location of the museum produces a fantastic feel and energy. I love the idea of housing Britain's first museum of modern art in a defunct power station. Additionally, the museum is really perfectly placed in the city. The artworks are for the most part astounding and provoking. I feel something of a bonus is added by the manner in which they are exhibited. Overall, a fantastic collection.
Recommendations: Go early Stay late Go often Take your time Enjoy Boo/Hiss: No cameras The prices at the book store Good Journeys!

I love the walk to the Tate Modern and the Lichtensteins and the bookshop but nothing else grabbed me. The architecture feels unwelcoming and unhuman friendly, it was cavernous cold and I just don't get the huge, empty, gaping steel and glass entrance with nothing in it. It would be an excellent display space for large exhibits but its always empty when I go, with the exception of an exhibit at the back which is always poorly lit. Personal taste I guess!

one of our favourite sunset scene is wander along river thames, from blackfriar to direction st paul's cathedral and take a pause at wobbly millenium bridge then continuing to tate milleniium. a funny thing ... my beloved one like a small alley nearby called 'knightrider something', knightrider just like hasselhoff's can you believe that? :)
