What is Tate Modern?

With its superb collection of modern and contemporary art, Tate Modern is easily among the most impressive museums in London. Covering many disciplines, from painting and sculpture to installations, modern dance and film, Tate has something to cater to everyone's tastes. Discover famous and lesser-known artists, and talk about works of art with your peers. You don't need to be a pro! Think about what impression a work makes on you and start a discussion. Why not have that discussion over coffee at Café 2? Alternatively, you can book a guided tour-for-two, in which an expert takes you through highlights of the collection. Afterwards, the Level 7 restaurant offers a spectacular view of the city, a menu that changes with the season, and a fabled wine list to facilitate your discussion of new findings. Or take the kids! They eat for free when they eat with you, and there's a spectacular variety of activities for them. One of them is the interactive zone, where they get to know more about modern art and artists through interactive multimedia experiences. Finally, there's several shops: the Main Shop has a very wide range of books on modern art and culture in the UK, and you can buy gifts and postcards at the Exhibition Shop.
