London ’s Tate Modern art gallery must qualify as the most popular art gallery in the world with visitor of estimated at 4.7 million per annum. Tate Modern is just one in a household of four galleries across the united kingdom. It’s placed in the magnificent and massive building which used to be the Bankside Power Station, and its conversion to art gallery has been profitable. The place is along the millennium footbridge, over the lake and bank of the Thames a little far from St. Paul’s Cathedral.
Tate Modern’s permanent set and its temporary exhibitions have been successful and its free admission added to its fame. The exhibition space has expanded by about 60% because of the addition of the Change House.
