Such an inspiring visit, beautifully curated exhibition of Barbarra Hepworth's life and work. The garden is beautiful and viewing the sculptures and how they relate to each other in this setting is fascinating. Being able to look through the windows into Barbarra's sculpture studio is intriquing and her greenhouse with a cactus collection, gives a very human feel to the museum. I visited this museum and garden when I was a chid (about35 years ago), I was determined to take my family there on our recent trip to St. Ives and they really enjoyed visiting, and said it was the highlight of the trip.

What a gem. The hidden garden has views across the rooftops of St Ives and displays some wonderful sculpture in an intimate setting. Against the cool blue November skies, they were stunning. The garden encloses the studio and the knowledgeable guides explained how she worked. We thought this would be a small add on to the main Tate but it was a highlight.

Love the cury sculptures. Exhibit worth a visit for sure. Preferred to the Tate exhibit that I did not care for; but liked the building structure and viewing point.

A small but beautifully formed sculpture garden. I found every one of the sculptures interesting. Seeds seem to be the main inspiration.

If you are visiting St Ives and the weather is good you won't spend a better couple of hours wandering through the Barbara Hepworth museum and garden. It is wonderful and the views are great.
