Been to the Barbara Hepworth a couple of times and it is always a real treat. My favourite part is the garden and I could sit out there all day

We bought combination tickets for the Tate museum and here. We were disappointed with the Tate but really enjoyed learning about Barbara’s personal life and her garden is a little oasis.

Hepworth is from Wakefield in Yorkshire. She spent most of her life working in Cornwall mostly statues and art. Well worth looking round.

Worth at least one one visit, the garden's have a wonderful feel. Sculpture is varied, well presented and thought provoking. The history storyboard is well worth the time to read and assimilate.

A beautiful garden enhanced by fabulous sculpture. Much more behind the door to the museum than I had expected.

Although this is a small museum it is packed with interesting facts about Barbara Hepworth and her life. There are stunning sculptures both inside the house and outside in the garden. It really is worth the short walk up the steep hill.
