  The Tate Modern Art Gallery
by easyoar

One of the best ways of viewing the outside of the Tate Modern is from the Millennium Bridge (pedestrians only). It is very obvious to see that the building used to be a Power Station (as indeed it was). It still has its old smokestack.

These days however, all of the old generating equipment has gone, to be replaced by lots and lots of some of the best 20th Century Art in the world. What's shown inside changes frequently, so it is hard to give details of what is currently there. See the attached website which should be able to give more details.

The museum itself is open every day of the year except Dec 24th, 25th and 26th.
