The Tate Modern in London is located on Park Street. You need to take a map with you as it is a long walk from the nearest tube station. It is free to enter you only need money for the gift shop or any paying exhibitions that you want to see. The Tate Modern is open every day from 10am.The Tate Modern is and ever changing display of some of the greatest modern artists of our time, the exhibits are always fresh and exciting as innovative artists create inspiring pieces. The museum is very big, it has seven floors and if all pieces are explored in detail you will need a few days to go around the whole thing. There are toilets and disabled access on all levels of the building by lifts and ramps.The Tate Modern uses space well, there are so many pieces of artwork yet it doesn’t feel as though it is all crammed in. One of my favourite artists displayed here is Andy Warhol and his Pop Art. I love the bright colours and bold images. I love the way that you can just sit down anywhere in the Tate Modern and begin drawing as people don’t mind, I always find in other art galleries that people get a little annoyed at this. I think you are able to do this here because of the amount of space in the gallery so people don’t have to squash round you. As the Tate Modern is so big it may be worth your while joining the free guided tours, these last 45 minutes and you don’t need to book in advance. These tours are of different aspects of the gallery dependent upon the time that you go on them so you should check the website for details.Even if you don’t really like art you may still enjoy the Tate Modern as some of the exhibits are funny, off the wall and some just strange!
