The Tate Modern, located…

The Tate Modern, located in the repurposed Bankside Power Station.

They have lots of pictures in here but .. “When the gallery opened in 2000, the collections were not displayed in chronological order but were rather arranged thematically into four broad groups .. ostensibly because a chronological survey of the story of modern art along the lines of the Museum of Modern Art in New York would expose the large gaps in the collections, the result of the Tate’s conservative acquisitions policy for the first half of the 20th century.”

They have done a couple of ‘rehangs’ since opening in 2000 but still in categories and not in any chronological sense.
