Tate Modern

Tate Modern is Britain's new national museum of modern art in London and, along with the Tate Britain, Tate Liverpool and Tate St. Ives[?] a part of the Tate Gallery.

It is housed in the former Bankside Power Station[?], which was originally designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott, the architect responsible for Battersea Power Station, and built in two stages between 1947 and 1963. The power station closed in 1981. The building was converted by architects Herzog & de Meuron. Since its opening on May 12, 2000 it has become a very popular destination for Londoners and tourists.
