This is one of Londons most child friendly museums, with its big open spacious displays ideal for kids and children, also allowing plenty of room for pushchairs. It is both a fun and educational day out for the whole family with concise and clear explanations of the exhibits on display and a host of interactive activities for the kids and children. The huge hangar like basement is a great place for the kids to run around and let off some steam.

It is great approaching the Tate Modern from St Pauls over the Millenium Bridge that gives a great view of the former power station, as well as great views up and down the river thames.

Also check out the Tate Modern website for children.

There is a good buzz outside the Tate where there is always a throng of people and often young free runners or stunt cyclists doing tracks that are good fun to watch. In the summer the green outside is an ideal place for a picnic.



Opening Hours

Open: Daily 10.00-18.00; Closed 24,25,26 December.

Is food available and what type?

Restaurant is available but is a little pricey. For young children you are better off taking your own food as there is plenty of space inside to picnic and a large green at the front overlooking the river if the weather is nice.
