The Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art is a center for contemporary art located on the south bank of the River Tyne, England. It opened in 2002 in a converted flour mill, a landmark industrial building, and hosts changing programme of exhibitions and events, with no permanent exhibition.

BALTIC is now a huge mustard-coloured art gallery rivalling London’s Tate Modern. The complex has artists in residence, a performance space, a cinema, a bar, a spectacular rooftop restaurant and a ground-floor restaurant with riverside tables. A 4th-floor outdoor platform and 5th-floor viewing box offer fabulous panoramas of the Tyne.
