Explore the work of Barbara Hepworth through her home, studio and garden

Start on the ground floor where you enter the museum archive space. The room houses photographs, articles and items from Hepworth’s own collection, and examples of unfinished sculptures and the tools Hepworth used to make them.

Taking the stairs to the first floor, you enter Hepworth’s former studio and living space. The studio now displays sculptures and prints from across Hepworth’s career, alongside some of the artists own furniture and objects.

Exiting into the sculpture garden, you can visit Hepworth’s stone and plaster workshops and the sculpture yard. Over twenty sculptures can be found along the route through the garden, many laid in position by Hepworth herself. Enjoy the planting scheme and garden design that Hepworth created with help from a friend, the composer Priaulx Rainier. Discover the artist's summer house and a greenhouse containing her collection of cacti and tender plants.
