What fun! Met a few friends to snowshoe here amongst the sculpture rather than the usual woods. We did not go on a guided tour, but chose, instead, to meander around the grounds at our own pace. How fun to snowshoe around the rolling grounds...More

The museum was interesting, but not hugely impressive in scale. The springtime weekday we visited, the entire property was mostly deserted, which suited us fine. That gave us plenty of time to quietly stroll around the spacious grounds, taking photos and admiring the sculptures and...More

The DeCordova is a really beautiful museum - the grounds are gorgeous, overlooking a pond. The collection is well-curated; the pieces are thought-provoking while still accessible. It's a really lovely way to spend a sunny afternoon.

A great day trip. The sculptures were amazing. It was a beautiful day and perfect for walking around the grounds. Much to see for kids and the grown-ups.

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.
