One of the most emblematic museums in London, a visit to the Tate Modern is a must do, if you're interested by contemporary art. It is the most-visited modern art gallery in the world, with around 4.7 million visitors per year.

The collections are hosted in an iconic building on Southbank riverside, the old power station closed in 1981 and it's now a great place for art. The collections consist of works of international modern and contemporary art dating from 1900 until today.

The Tate Modern currently has seven floors. The main display is exhibited over 4 wings. Within each wing there are some rooms that change periodically showing different works in keeping with the overall themes or subjects of the wing.

End of 2013 the Tate Modern started to being transformed to create a new gallery fit for the 21st century. An iconic new building rises to the south of the existing gallery, and involves a number of changes in the Turbine Hall for the future.

The display of the collections will be affected during the reconstruction. Please check the Tate Modern website for latest updates.
