Focusing on modern and contemporary art, Tate Liverpool is the Liverpool location of the Tate. It presents changing exhibitions largely drawn from the same collections that support Tate Britain and Tate Modern in London.
Tate Liverpool is housed in a converted warehouse in the Royal Albert Dock complex. This complex was built in the 1840s and were considered technologically advanced for their time. They continued to perform various warehouse functions until the 1970s. After a decade of neglect, the buildings were transformed into museums, shops and cafes. Part of a World Heritage site, they are now a popular tourist attraction.
The Tate opened its Liverpool location in 1988. Occupying the end building in a row of what were connected warehouses, the building has three floors of exhibition space plus a shop and cafe on the ground floor.
In addition to exhibitions, Tate Liverpool conducts workshops and hosts social events.
