  • Tate Modern's revamped site now boasts a virtual tour to let new visitors plan their route through the gallery, floor by floor, according to which art works they'd like to see.

    The collection is also broken down by period and year in a timeline which shows how each work fits into the historical climate in which it was produced.

  • The same functionality will also be available on touch screens throughout the museum, to help the art-bewildered get the most out of their trip.

  • Andrew Marr, host of the BBC's Sunday AM programme and member of the Tate's council, was there to launch the new site. Those logging into the Tate Modern's new website will be able to see a personal tour of the gallery created by Marr.

    He said: "When people come to the Tate Modern, it can be a bit intimidating – it's so huge, there's so much here. One of the things this can do is resolve a lot of those anxieties."
