Fodor's Review

An offshoot of the London-based art galleries of the same name, Tate Liverpool is located in a handsome conversion of Albert Dock warehouses by the late James Stirling, one of Britain's leading 20th-century architects. There is no permanent collection; challenging exhibitions of modern and contemporary art change every couple of months. A free introductory tour begins daily at 2:40 and there are free daily talks, too, as well as children's activities, an excellent gift shop, and a dockside café-restaurant.
