The Hepworth Wakefield
"One of the finest contemporary art museums in Europe." The Independent
The Hepworth Wakefield is the country's largest purpose-built gallery in nearly 50 years and is named after Wakefield-born sculptor Barbara Hepworth. Inside this inspiring gallery you'll find a unique collection of sculptures by Barbara Hepworth, as well as changing exhibitions by world-famous artists.
The Hepworth makes a gallery trip fun for children and grown-ups alike, with a family gallery trail to help you explore the galleries, a riverside play park and picnic area, and there's fun at weekends and school holidays, with free and paid for activities: help us make giant sculptures, become an art detective with our explorer packs or discover how to carve like Barbara Hepworth in one of our workshops.
Closed Mondays except school holidays and bank holiday Mondays: 11am - 5pm
