Wonderful place! Inside museum was quiet and clean. The outdoor section was absolutely beautiful! There are walking trails that bring you by several contemporary sculptures. Lots of photo opportunities. Staff was very friendly. Gift shop was nice. Definitely recommended if you are looking to have a relaxing day out!

It was suggested to visit DeCordova and we were glad we did. The weather was nice which allowed for us to walk the property seeking out sculptures. You never knew where you would find the next one and surprised at what was there. We spent a few hours walking around the grounds and found some quite interesting works of art.... More

Great place to visit. Something to see for both the young and old. New exhibits all the time. Very pricey.

Everything outside is safe for all. I would be afrade to being young children as touching is off limits, and even my... More

Our family enjoyed our day trip to the Sculpture park. Neither my husband or 8 year old daughter are into the arts. But they enjoyed the variety and the sculptures were all spread out as we walked. This is family friendly with lots of shade and open spaces for the kids to run around. The inside portion has very modern... More

I like sculptures and this place on the way to some other activities that we had planned for the day so we decided to check it out. They had quite a bit of sculptures on display, but really nothing of interest. We did like the hearts they had on displayed that the designer put tools and such engraved in the... More

Have to be honest. I didnt want to go at first, but I changed mind once i got there. It s a big garden, partially covered by the trees, where you can find those sculpture scattered everywhere; a lot of theme are really original and impressive. The tour guide, Steve Kendall, really made the difference: very communicative and knowledgeable, he... More

An outdoor wedding as the sun was lower (6:30 p.m.) made this wedding as special as the couple. The grounds are beautiful and I would return to walk more of the property. The deck was a nice place to have cocktails and appetizers.

We went on date day to the gardens. The museum was a nice place to view modern art. We walked around the grounds it is hilly, so wear good walking shoes. We enjoyed a picinic and the warm weather. A great place to visit just off the highway.
