テート・モダンTate Modern

Tate Modern, which has a symbol of a high chimney near the river Thames in the south bank area, is one of the most popular museums in London. It was opened in May in the millennium year数あるロンドンの美術館の中でもひときわ人気なのが、テムズ川沿いサウスバンク地区にある、大きな煙突が特徴のテート・モダンだ。オープンは2000年5月、ミレニアムを記念しての事だったが、すぐにMOMAやポンピドゥーセンターと並ぶ世界を代表する現代美術館となった。

and immediately became one of the leading international modern art museums along with MOMA and Centre Pompidou.

Tate Group purchased the building which was a former power station to display outgrown international modern art collections and converted to be as a new museum. The architect of the building was Herzog & de Meuron, a Swiss architect unit , and they retained the character of the former power station such as a huge turbine hall. They combined brick wall and glass very effectively and it is not only classic, but modern looking.

Exhibit rooms are from level three to five. You can see the exhibits for free except for the temporary exhibition on the whole level four. The turbine hall on the ground floor became a dramatic display space to enjoy dynamic installation projects.

When you are tired of watching many contemporary art works, let’s find a place to take a break. The museum has a book store with well selected art books and magazines abundantly, a museum shop, and cafes. Especially in the top floor of the museum is a cafe & restaurant, you can enjoy a meal with stunning views of the river Thames and the millennium bridge linking St. Paul’s Cathedral and the museum. Even the visitors who hesitate about contemporary art are surely able to have a good time there. This is one of the “must-see” spots in London.
