Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden, St Ives

4.6
#1 of 105 in Museums in Cornwall
A typical stone house in St. Ives on the outside, Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden reveals the creative hub of an artist on the inside. The living room's original furnishings remain as they were left while the artist's workshop holds half-finished paintings, tools, and materials. The garden beside the house is another work of art that was designed by Hepworth and friend Priaulx Rainier, the South-African composer.

  • Definitely worth a visit on a nice day, mainly to see the fantastic garden with many interesting sculptures.  more »
  • I think you'd have to be a big fan of her work, or more generally modern art to appreciate this museum. I thoroughly enjoyed it, but I can totally see where some of the bad reviewers are coming from. ...  more »

  • Great place to visit and you can spend at least 2 hours over here. Full of sculptures and creation done by Barbara. This is a part of creative history of this place and you need to pay £ 7/- per head. However of under 19 people it is free of cost. They don't have clock rooms but the humble lady at reception gave us some place to keep few bags.
  • Excellent new gallery space with a good permanent collection but ticket sales very time-consuming as both attendants were selling Tate memberships while the queue for ordinary tickets built up. Superb location on Porthmeor beach.
