About the Tate Modern

Based inside a former power station, this is one of the leading art galleries for modern and contemporary art in the world.

Hosts a large number of permanent collections, but also a number of temporary exhibitions.

The massive turbine hall is often given over the large site-specific installations.

IMPORTANT - Although venues are reopening, their hours may differ from normal, and most now need prebooking before you visit.
