  1. The Tate Modern, Europe's most visited modern art gallery, has a worldwide reputation as stunning as its architecture, a renovated power station in London's Bankside since it was unveiled by Britain's Queen Elizabeth II in 2000. It houses the national collection of British art from 1900 to the present, as well as international modern and contemporary art from throughout the world. The museum's building was expanded in 2016 to include the so-called Switch House, which gives the organization 60% extra exhibition space. Tate Modern is part of the Tate collection, which also comprises Tate Britain, Tate Liverpool, Tate St. Ives, and Tate Online.

    A visit to the Tate presents a full history of modern art from the twentieth century and beyond, with a permanent collection shown throughout the Boiler House and the recently opened Switch House, designed by Herzog & de Meuron. In addition to its permanent collection, which includes everything from painting to performance, it hosts well-curated retrospectives of contemporary art greats such as Damien Hirst, Roy Lichtenstein, and Edvard Munch.
