Tate Modern, Bankside, London, UK
This museum is a definite must-see. Housed in a former power station that was beautifully redone in 2000 by Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron, Tate Modern was voted the capital’s favorite building. Debuted in Spring 2016 was Switch House; a 10-story extension to the building named after the section of the power station that the new galleries occupy. Switch House expands the Tate’s existing gallery space by 60% to accommodate surging visitor numbers, and includes the Tate Modern Terrace Bar with prime city views and Level 9 restaurant.
A scenic way to approach it is from the north side of Lord Norman Foster’s graceful, pedestrian-only Millennium Bridge, which links the museum with St. Paul’s Cathedral. The Uber Boats that run between the Tate Modern and Tate Britain are also a great way to arrive (take the RB2 line). There are usually weekly playdate events geared for families with kids (and alot of activities and games for kids online, too). Indagare members can contact our bookings team to arrange for a visit with an expert guide.
