London's Biggest Attraction

London Geezer cites an interesting story (it's a couple weeks old now, but it's news to me) about the top attractions in Great Britain, and to my surprise (maybe everybody's), the top tourist site in London is not only a museum, not only an art museum, but a modern art museum. The Tate Modern beat, among others, the British Museum, with its kid-friendly mummies, and the Tower of London, with its adult-friendly macabre storytelling.

Take that, all you people who say you don't "get" modern art.

(Madame Tussaud's, the London Eye and the gruesome torture museum on the South Bank don't make the list, but perhaps they aren't members of ALVA.)
