My son’s opinion follows….Lots of Morden art that I couldn’t really understand. It was a good little stop from the cold outside and didn’t really plan to stay long. We looked downstairs and saw this Morden art. Upstairs was all kind of art 3D 2D and most of it was hilariously random. We walked into a room that said family’s welcome and drew a picture and made a tower with bricks. We didn’t really plan for the visit to be that long but in the end was very fun. The only bad thing is I couldn’t understand most of the art. It was free for most of it.

There is free tour for visitors.I attended one of point artwork speech that chose a one artwork and explain that for 10-15 mins. It was good.It's huge different that to see the art yourself and listen the explanations specifically for the Morden art.I wanted to take some photos inside in display area. but I saw there was a signage on the door that doesn't allow taking pictures.Then now I can see a lot of review photos here in google. Maybe some of room is allow to take photo for art work.

There are a lot of worthy exhibits. As is usual in modern art, without descriptions not much would be clear, but the writing is very decent and really makes you see the meanings behind the clutter of objects. Picasso and Dalí are modestly neighboring with the most daring exhibits. Visited on Weekday Wait time No wait Reservation recommended No … More

Tate Liverpool - A beautiful gallery full of contemporary artWhat is Tate Liverpool?Tate Liverpool is an art gallery that is located in the heart of Liverpool. They hold a number of exhibitions, festivals and displays that take place throughout the year.ExhibitionsJMW Turner with Lamin Fofana: Dark WatersThis Exhibition presents JMW Turner’s work in a new immersive way with music created by Lamin Fofana.Turners artwork is truly incredible in transporting us to the seas. It features beautiful details of ships and breath taking landscapes. In addition, the music brings the works to life and adds a sprinkle of magic.It was also relatable in the issues that they represented and this included the power and politics of the ocean. They also focused on the dangers of the waters around the British Coast. This was done with simplicity and style.However most of the artwork were of ships and boats. I would have loved to have seen some variety in the works such as including people or conveying their body language in the artworks. It would also have been more engaging if there was some video footage or to have a interactive element included too.Ideas DepotThe Ideas Depot is a dynamic collection of artwork that is chosen with primary school children that is designed to be enjoyed by everyone no matter what their age is.This was one of the highlights of the visit as it had an eclectic collection of artwork that was unique and eye-catching. Some used everyday kitchen utensils to create a piece of art that was exciting.Some of the artwork that caught my eye was a camera that took the same scene in different angles, a staircase that was quirky and more. It was engaging and it makes you appreciate art in new ways.The Liverpool BiennialIt was the biggest collection of artwork where it is created using objects that you use on a regular basis. Some that stood out and were intriguing was a chair made out of beads and a piece that was made out of cuscus. Incredible. It is contemporary art at its best and it uses your imagination in mindboggling ways.Entry and PricingEntry to the collections at Tate Liverpool is free of charge. In relation to the special exhibitions then you are required to book a timed slot and pay online. For further details then check out the Tate Liverpool website.FacilitiesTate Liverpool has a café that serves a selection of sandwiches and hot meals. They also offer hot and cold drinks too. It is on the pricey side. An alternative is the food and drink vans near the Docks to which you can sit down to eat whilst enjoying the lovely views.Toilets are on site.Lighting and AccessLighting at the JMW Turner Exhibition was OK but was not great as some aspects were done in dim lighting. Despite this we overcome the challenge to the best of my ability. The lighting in the collections was decent and I could see most of the artwork which helped me to enjoy my experience here.In relation to access at Tate Liverpool there are stairs and lifts to all floors so if you have mobility issues then use the lifts as it would be easier to navigate.ParkingTate Liverpool does not have its own designated car park however there is plenty of pay and display parking near the Docks and Museum. Payment is required even if you have a Blue Badge.If you love contemporary art that is engaging and fun that plays with your mind and senses then Tate Liverpool is the place for you.

Like the Tate Modern and Tate Britain, this art museum is also free (donations welcomed). The special exhibit on at the time of visit in mid-August had a small ticket price, which was well worth it, to see the JM Turner watercolours, notebooks and sketches.I picked up a Tate t-shirt from London's Tate Modern in 2018 as a gift, and went to this muesum gift shop to purchase another one, this time for myself. Although I was disappointed that Tate Liverpool ran out of the signature black Tate t-shirts, the disappointment does not warrant a reduction of a star in this review since the museum experience was the main reason for my visit to Tate Liverpool, and that did not disappoint.

Interesting art (at least some of it!). I’m happy to see a couple of things which impact me and gloss over the restStaff good. Building good.Cafe good (usually).I enjoy visiting. (Bit sad it’s scheduled to close for a makeover).

The galleries of the Tate are so well laid out. On this visit there were a number of pieces that were lighted to display the shadows of the pieces, adding a different dimension. We were lucky to talk to a Tate employee in the 4th floor gallery who explained to us how the piece we were looking at was constructed. That made the experience so much more enjoyable. Hard to believe it's free to view most of the galleries.The Tate also has a cafe which serves really good food. Another great feature is the availability of free lockers. This was really helpful, as we were headed to the train from there.

IT IS CURRENTLY CLOSED. Don't waste your time going here. Unfortunately it is closed and has "moved" to the RIBA space nearby. But the works have not been transferred so at the RIBA you will only find a space for children and two rooms used for an exhibition dedicated to sustainable architecture.

I was really excited to visit the Tate but unfortunately it is temporarily closed for refurbishment. They have set up a temporary gallery across the way which we went to see. RIBA North or something it was called. Free to enter. A real lack of descriptions to help people to understand, and limited to 3 rooms, one of which I walked though because it looked like a kids play area. One of the exhibits was interesting about the greenhouse effect, but bear in mind its made by young people (think GCSE drama/media level). Another was basically junk and lockers taken from the Tate staffroom and made into an 'exhibit', lots of media where you sit in front of a TV and put headphones on and watch, strange!The staff are really keen and passionate which is nice. I feel bad leaving an average star review but I was hoping for the Tate and was disappointed.

The museum is planned and designed using old buildings. The curatorial concept of the special exhibition is very good, and you can see wonderful modern art works. The museum has learning guide packs that can be borrowed by parents and children, and it is recommended for visitors with children!
