Admissions and opening times

Free entry for 18s and under (a small additional charge applies for Beach Workshops), adults pay standard admission.  If you’re a family group visiting both sites, it makes sense for the adults to buy our combined ticket (particularly if you’re planning to take part in the ‘I Spy Tate’ challenge, as you’ll need to visit both Tate St Ives and the Barbara Hepworth Museum to succeed!).  Tickets cost £10 per adult for entry to both sites over a 7─day period.  Tate St Ives and the Barbara Hepworth Museum are open daily from 10.00-17.20 (last admission 17.00).  Extended summer opening hours apply from 27 July – 1 September (to 18.20, last admission 18.00).

To celebrate the ‘I Spy Tate’, we have ten ‘I Spy Tate’ T-shirts to give away… Simply enter here for your chance to win!
