I loved Barbara Hepworth's Museum and particularly the garden sculptures. Very small being in the middle of St Ives town but well worth a visit.

A beautifully balanced museum and garden. A stunning selection of the works of this amazing woman, inside and outside. Great to see her workspace and the documented history of her life and achievements. Great value for money. A beautiful setting to contemplate life and art.

Choose a fine day for your visit as, apart from one fairly small room, most of the sculptures are displayed in the garden. The garden itself is small, and rather dwarfed by some of the sculptures, but they are positioned to blend in perfectly with...More

Exquisite little museum/art gallery set in Barbara Hepworth own garden. You can see the workshops looking as if she’s just stepped out, unfinished works and tools still there. The trees and glimpses of St Ives past the garden wall are part of why she made...More

An oasis of calm and tranquility amongst Barbara Hepworth’s amazing work especially if you time it right when there are not too many people about. Her workshop exhibits an emotional air of someone who was so creative. A wonderful uplifting experience.

Fantastic sculpture, local context and beautiful garden but also Barbara Hepworth's home and life. A small museum but very personal. Recommended even if you're not really 'into art'.

This museum and garden gives the visitor an unexpectedly personal insight into the life and work of Barbara Hepworth. She lived right here, and her studio still has unfinished pieces and her tools on display. Her family, in partnership with the Tate, have maintained the...More
