Tate Liverpool is an art gallery and museum in Liverpool, Merseyside, England, and part of Tate, along with Tate St Ives, Cornwall, Tate Britain, London, and Tate Modern, London. The museum was an initiative of the Merseyside Development Corporation.

Tate Liverpool was created to display work from the Tate Collection which comprises the national collection of British art from the year 1500 to the present day, and international modern art. The gallery also has a programme of temporary exhibitions. Until 2003, Tate Liverpool was the largest gallery of modern and contemporary art in the UK outside London.

The gallery opened in 1988 and is housed in a converted warehouse within the Albert Dock on Liverpool’s waterfront. The original conversion was done by James Stirling but the building was given a major refurbishment in 1998 to create additional gallery space.
