Very informative gallery. Each piece (whether your cup of tea or not) provides background information that widens your awareness. Personally, I was amazed how many of the sculptures I loved. I’ve always liked Moore and Hepworth but discovered new pieces and artists to learn more...More

Whilst it is an interesting exhibition, there is disappointing little by Henry Moore himself. More of his influences. It links through into the neighbouring art gallery, both of which are free to visit.

This experience can be summed up really quickly, the historical value is good, the art work & sculptures are great, but the staff need a lesson in customer care / friendlyness !

Came here with a friend one Saturday afternoon and we enjoyed the exhibition. The layout of the building we found a bit strange and felt like there could be more to it. Liked how it links up to the art gallery. I would come here...More

The dominating black front is impressive in itself with the minimalist doorway/..it does intrigue people Alas a number of exhibits were in situ, and what was on display was a unique object, but the room was a filled with media about that object..rather uninspiring

The big sculptures are next door ( a couple fo bronzes in the Leeds art Gallery) or at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park near Wakefield. This is more intimate, far more specialised.Drawings, sketches, artefacts that influenced Moore or fellow sculptors who were inspired or were contemporaries...More

I'm not a big fan of Moore, but found this exhibit quite informative, and I was especially pleased to see some of his influences, which included items such as ancient Egyptian statues. Free, so check it out.

This is not a huge, blockbuster exhibition, but it is beautifully curated. Early HM drawings and quite figurative sculptures, were contrasted with an excellent selection of work by his contemporaries. An absolute must for anyone interested in the development of modern British art.

We visited specifically to see the Becoming Henry Moore exhibition which was interesting, but would have benefited from some more biographical context. Well appointed gallery space, but definitely one for specialist interests rather than generalists
