This museum and garden are full of Barbara Hepworth's sculptures with supporting literature and photographs. The garden is a delight. It is a short hilly walk from Tate St. Ives which is worth combining when visiting St. Ives.

The garden is just magical. If you like art you must visit this place. It's part of the Tate Gallery so you might as well pay for a joint ticket as this is worth a visit too.
