I wasn't sure what to expect from this small piece of history. Well worth spending time looking at the garden and sculptures in it plus the studio. I think if you have time wait for the guided tour which would give so much more. I...More

Many thanks for your feedback and It's great to hear you enjoyed your visit. The garden is looking particularly stunning this year. Rain or shine, it's a beautiful place to spend an afternoon.

Small and packed with amazing sculptures both inside and out. The museum gives an interesting insight into Hepworth's life. The compact garden shows off an array of outstanding work from the artist, well worth a visit.

This was a really enjoyable trip to the Museum. Lots of interesting sculptures and artifacts. We enjoyed a really informative tour with an enthusiastic guide. We also bought an art pass which combined with the Tate Gallery and was good value.
