Fodor's Review

Charles Saatchi, who made his fortune in advertising, is one of Britain's canniest collectors of contemporary art, credited with popularizing the Young British Artists movement through his championing of early works by the likes of Damien Hirst and Tracey Emin. The museum's home is at the former Duke of York's HQ, just off King's Road. Built in 1803, its grand period exterior belies its imaginatively restored modern interior, which was transformed into 15 exhibition spaces of varying size and shape. Unlike Tate Modern, there is no permanent collection other than ongoing site-specific installations: at any one time, galleries are devoted to between one and three exhibitions that normally run for up to six months. There's also an excellent café, which is open late.
