Photographer's Note

Tate Modern is an art gallery located in London. It houses the United Kingdom's national collection of international modern and contemporary art and forms part of the Tate group together with Tate Britain, Tate Liverpool, and Tate St Ives. It is located in the former Bankside Power Station, in the Bankside area of the London Borough of Southwark. Tate Modern is one of the largest museums of modern and contemporary art in the world. As with the UK's other national galleries and museums, there is no admission charge for access to the collection displays, which take up the majority of the gallery space, whereas tickets must be purchased for the major temporary exhibitions.
Tate Modern is housed in the former Bankside Power Station, which was originally designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott, the architect of Battersea Power Station, and built-in two stages between 1947 and 1963. It is directly across the river from St Paul's Cathedral. The power station closed in 1981. Tate Modern was opened by the Queen on 11 May 2000.[6]

Tate Modern received 5.25 million visitors in its first year. (From Wikipedia)

I was a bit disappointed with Tate Modern Galleries, although I liked the industrial building changed into an art gallery. But then, outside the museum, I saw this scene - street art of two kinds: an interesting mural with a view of London, and some music by a harp player. From geotag I found the place but I can't find it on the Google Map.
