Regular late openings at Tate?

June 16 2016


Regular readers will know that I've often advocated regular late night openings in museums. So I was glad to see The Times calling for the same in an editorial earlier this week, in response to the suggestion by Sir Nicholas Serota that parts of the new Tate Modern extension could stay open till late at night. I've always found it frustrating that museum hours don't suit most working people.

At the Prado in Madrid, where I was yesterday, you can go every weekday evening till 8pm. Although there's a charge for entry before 6pm, it's free thereafter.
