It shows work by British and international artists, including Henry Moore, Barabara Hepworth, Elizabeth Frink, Andy Goldsworthy and Joan Miro. The sculpture park occupies the 500-acre (200-hectare) parkland of Bretton Hall. YSP was awarded the Art Fund Museum of the Year (2014) and a new visitor centre that was shortlisted for the Stirling Prize for architecture, with gallery, restaurant and a shop, opened in 2019.
