It was so interesting to see where this renowned artist and sculptress lived - was particularly impressed by the garden and workshop - still as she left it.

It's a nice exhibit, and lovely outdoor gardens, but I found the museum rather small for what it charged. Not sure if I'd recommend it unless you were a big fan going in.

I could have sat in this garden of peace all day. It was so welcoming. In the museum there was a wealth of evidence about BH and so many personal archives. Like a magnet it draws you back.
