One of those rare museums that truly evokes the spirit of the person it celebrates. A beautiful tribute to Barabara Hepworth enhanced by the many sculptures that are arranged around the small garden overlooking the church, town and beaches.

A quiet garden in the centre of St. Ives. Excellent museum devoted to Barbara Hepworth. Visit at any time of year to soak up the atmosphere of an artists studio.

I loved this place. Can't quite put it into words, but it was full of the ghosts of Hepworth. A tranquil, spiritual place.

Our visit coincided with an animated and informative gallery tour (at 1200) which really brought the atmospheric site to life. Highly recommended.

Amazing feeling in Barbara Hepworth's home in St Ives. Full of her art works and sculptures, showing her mathmatical genius at work. One is aware of her presence still and can appreciate how St Ives inspired her craft.
