The museum and grounds contain great examples of many art forms. The grounds offer a nice, relaxed walk while admiring the many sculptures that are placed throughout the acreage. A great way to enjoy an afternoon.

A friend and I decided to visit here because we had always wondered about it. We will wonder no more, neither will we be visiting again. Although the grounds are lovely, the sculptures are not well identified. The museum is a large space with a...More

Loved walking throughout the park and seeing so many pieces of art! Unfortunately it rained a bit while we were there, and the museum was closed... but I loved the gift shop that was also filled with lots of artsy pieces!

We visited when the main content of the museum was something called "Air". Artists interested in how space can be defined/delineated to form shapes. (at least that's my one sentence of what I think they were doing) Interesting - but not sure I "got" it....More

Let me start with the downside - the museum. I was expecting much more from several floors of art. A good part of it was dedicated to an artist who works in plaster. One the upside - where I spent most of my afternoon -...More

If one is in the area, it’s truly worth the visit. The sculptures in the park are very interesting for adults and kids as well. There is a museum, interesting, with different temporary exhibits. One can spend a good two hours visiting and even having...More

The sculpture park alone is worth the price of admission with it's impressive art. But, inside is just as impressive with multiple galleries.

My husband and I were riding our bicycle past the DeCordova, never having visited it before. We glanced in, saw some very cool pieces, and decided to ride in. We didn't have much time, so we weren't going to buy tickets, but some other cyclists...More

I was there in early February. It had snowed a little so the park was covered in just the right amount of snow where you could see the beautiful scenery as well as the sculptures. Definitely a must go!

Admission includes a large variety of outdoor, modern sculptures and a large indoor museum. It's all modern art. The outdoor sculptures are spread out around the property. The grounds are impeccably maintained. DeCordova is in a very beautiful, relaxed, and quiet setting. It's quite enjoyable...More

Four hours is more than enough. If weather permits, taking a guided trip of the Sculpture Park is great. I think 90 mins. for the inside exhibits is my personal limit. And it is worth taking some time in the gift shop.
