  • The deCordova Museum in Lincoln is one of those out-of-the way places that one only visits if they are local or rent a car while visiting. It is definitely worth the trip. Everything about the deCordo...  more »
  • This is an exciting place to visit. You have an outside park with the sculptures, as well as an inside museum. Many interesting items to enjoy.

  • Cool outdoor sculpture spread around the grounds lending itself to great photo opportunities. An interesting and somewhat large inside space with varied and interesting contemporary art and photos, as well as a place for kids to explore and create art. They have a very cool gift shop with kids toys, desktop toys, household items, and jewelry.
  • Inkberry... concrete This place is the perfect escape The decordova ball wet clay brick sigh I mean really this place is f****** awesome.
  • So many different genres/subjects of art to see! It is also nice to have both indoor and outdoor artworks to view. They allow dogs that are leashed in the sculpture park, but not the indoor museum. Please remember to clean up after your pet in order to keep this option available! The only downside to deCordova is the cafe, it is tiny, a bit pricey for average food. If you are planning to spend the day, I would suggest packing a picnic- there are plenty of places to sit and enjoy it!
  • Amazing place. What great sculptures. The museum building is pretty with great views. Me and my friend spent 2-3 hours there but we could have easily spent the entire day- especially on a nice sunny day, it's fun to explore and look at different sculptures.
  • A wonderful museum in suburban Boston. Lots of great artwork and beautiful grounds. I went with the kids and they had a good time.
