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

Currently showing special exhibitions by a Japanese artist: we had mixed feelings about his style but some really interesting pieces. I particularly liked his perspective piece

Smallish gallery, well laid out. Named artist exhibition in a couple of rooms with one or two small side rooms featuring other artists. I think your visit will depend on what artist(s) they are showing at the time...don't come expecting Henry Moore pieces. Free entry,...More
