Beautiful grounds filled with a broad array of interesting and in some cases magnificent sculptures, this museum is a great destination for a relaxing and inspiring day. The indoor museum is currently closed due to the pandemic but the grounds are open, requiring an advance ticket for admission to keep the size of the crowd to a reasonable number. The landscaping is natural and quite beautiful and the sculptures are arranged to fit into the landscape. Great for a leisurely stroll or even a picnic. The art is wonderful, creative, inspiring and some of the pieces are truly magnificent. Definitely worth the trip.

This place was great and so much more than we expected!!!! the park is laid out wonderfully. we really enjoyed walking around and seeing all the sculptures. They all had little plaques describing the art work. It was pretty hot when we visited so we can't wait to visit again on a cooler day where we can enjoy it a little more. Both my kids loved it also (2 and 9). The 9 year old wished she had brought her sketch book so that she could draw some of the sculptures.

If you go to the DeCordova and to Gropius House, just down the road, one of the two will be full price and the second one will be half price. Gropius takes about an hour, with tours scheduled hourly. The DeCordova has a satisfactory snack bar, bathrooms, and a beautiful gift shop. It has a very rich collection of outdoor sculpture on the grounds, and several galleries in the main building. There is plenty of visual material between the two venues to pick and choose what is good for your interests, the weather, and the length of your day.

I've been going to deCordova for well over a decade. The indoor exhibits change regularly and over time even many of the sculptures switch out. I personally find the sculptures and the outdoor campus to be the main draw so pick a day without rain. I bet even if bundled, the grounds would be beautiful in the snow.
