    Well worth the visit to see local women artists, most still residing locally. New sculptures added and cafe is very pleasantly relocated next to store.  more »

    Delicate and fun place for a 2-to-3-hour visit. Sculptures are interesting and could contribute to amazing and fun pictures. Only be sure to avoid hot weather. The museum displays many contemporary art works. Don't forget the view on the top patio.

    This is a museum gem in Lincoln, MA. The sculpture park alone is worth the trip. The gorgeous grounds are peppered with delightful sculptures. The museum is not too big and is totally manageable. In the summer the Park Fest event is great for families and art lovers - a juried art/craft show along with lots of activities for kids, food and entertainment.

    The sculpture garden at Decordova is glorious !!Fun, interesting sculptures artfully placed throughout the beautiful gardens and lawns . This is a delightful place to stroll, picnic, and visit with friends. The museum itself is a beautiful old building, with a unique modern art collection. The store always has fun, unusual, artsy items.

    Bikes get in for free. Grab a map if you're into appreciating the art, or just wander around for a while enjoying the scenery. The gift shop is one of the better gift shops I've seen in the Boston area - definitely check it out before leaving.

    It was beautiful. The grounds were landscaped very nicely and the sculptures were laid out perfectly. There was a lot to see.
