An abundance of modern art in an invested area of London and with a number of visitors that even exceeds the big MoMA (Museum of Modern Art).
This museum is an example of, how the English say - to kill two birds with a stone. On one hand, since its opening in the year 2000, it has established itself as one of the most visited museums of modern art in the world, superseding New York's MoMA or the Reina Sofía Modern Art Museum in Madrid. On the other hand, it has culturally and economically revitalized the area of Southwark as the museum now occupies what used to be an old and disused electrical power station, next to an area which was gradually in decline. Following the building's conversion by the Swiss architects, Herzog & Meuron, millions of people have gone to see this exhibition of Tate Britain which was previously known as the National Gallery of British Art and comprises of various museums which focus on different branches of art. But it's here, where you find the most influential contemporary works by Picasso, Rothko, Dalí and Warhol since 1900. You can be sure that your visit will be refreshing since, in contrast to the rest of the city's touristic spots which are steeped in history, it is a modern museum both in form and content, as the adaptation of the site converts it into such an innovative building somewhat like its exhibited works.
