Some fun facts about the Museum :
- Tate Modern is located on South Bankside of the Thames in London, near St. Paul’s Cathedral.
- The building used to be an industrial power station and therefore is stylistically very different than any other art museum in the world. The chimney though 99m high is lower than the dome of St. Paul’s Cathedral.
- The inside of the gallery is a massive 34,500 sq m. This consists of various galleries and exhibition spaces, two cafes, a 240 seat auditorium, a gift shop and several other spaces.
- Entry to the permanent collection is free. However, special exhibitions have a charge. The main source of revenue is membership and subscriptions. Members enjoy a wide range of benefits including discounts on special exhibits as well as on items in the gift shop and cafes.
- Other than subscription income, the gallery has various institutional and individual supporters who facilitate the purchase or long-term loan of artworks for display.
A Final Thought : TATE
Apart from Tate Modern, the Tate Foundation has also been responsible for establishing Tate Britain, as well as artvgalleries in St Ives and Tate Liverpool. These are all supported by the UK Department for Culture, Media & Sport.
