As soon as you arrive at the Tate Modern the site is buzzing. There is music at the riverside and the imposing museum drawing you in to it's treasures. The Picasso Exhibition is a rare treat. A beautifully arranged series of paintings and sculptures provide a rare insight into the world of Picasso, his life and passions.

I'd recommend the Tate Modern in and of itself, but for those in town through 9 September 2018, I highly recommend visiting the Picasso exhibit -- well worth the fee!

I've been to the Picasso museum in Malaga, and I've seen various shows of his works over the years, but I really appreciated the way this exhibit was put together.

Focusing on a unique year of the artist's life -- one marked by well-established fame giving way to restlessness and ultimately reinvention -- the show walks you through the seasons of 1932, and the artist's life and work.

Even without the audio guide, I learned a lot about this incredible period in Picasso's life, including the prolific pace at which he worked. One room features about a half-dozen large, beautiful canvases he painted in 12 days!

Overall, a very well-organized, interesting and beautiful exhibit.

The highlight of London in any respect, the collection of moderno art was above our expectation, you can spent here hours and hours and still could not see it all. I liked all of it, and I will come back next year.

Always enjoy visiting the Tate Modern. Lots of floors to explore, much of it is free to see.
It's a good way to learn about different movements etc. as exhibitions are arranged in a meaningful way, so take time to read an explanation in each room. You might not love everything, but the building is interesting to wander through. Take time to stop in the upstairs cafe which affords stellar views across to St. Paul's and the Thames.
Special exhibition tickets are expensive. We saved money by joining the Tate, which certainly wasn't cheap but we saw four exhibitions at both Tate locations. We were able to bypass any lines and enter at our convenience. Also consider taking the Tate to Tate boat from the dock in front. It's available to all, costs a few pounds and you'll enjoy the ride across to the Millbank location.

We visited the Tate modern on a Saturday after lunch and spent ca 3-4 hours.
Most of the exhibitions are free however 2-3 special exhibitions require a ticket or Tate Modern membership.
The queues were short however some rooms were crowded.
The museum is big enough for finding a calm, quiet spot.
Toilets are good and reachable on almost every floor level.
Lifts / elevators are very crowded and slow.
Great view of London city from the 10th floor.
