Some fun facts about the Museum :
- The Tate galleries hold a vast collection of art from the 16th to 21st centuries. The entire collection is divided between the 4 venues. Tate Britain, Tate St Ives, St Liverpool and Tate Modern.
- Of course, the even across multiple venues, the Tate is not able to display its entire collection. These are many works on loan to other institutions worldwide. And many more remain in storage. However, the Tate allows for viewing of works in storage with special permission. One need only fill out a form on their website.
- Apart from the artworks on display, there is also a library and reading room at the Millbank gallery. Visitors are allowed to use the reading room as a study space, free of charge. As a result, you might often find art history students completing assignments or writing their theses here. The massive collection of books, journals and documents are a great resource. If you intend visiting the library or reading room, be sure to book an appointment in advance. Also be sure to read their library rules carefully.
