deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum is a popular site for families and picnickers. The Museum houses rotating exhibitions of contemporary art.
The Sculpture Park contains beautifully landscaped lawns, forests, fields, gardens, and terraces on a rolling site along the shore of Flint’s Pond; at any given time, approximately 65 sculptures are on display. Climbing is not permitted.
Established in 1950 and located just 20 miles west of Boston, deCordova is dedicated to fostering the creation and exploration of contemporary sculpture and art through a dynamic slate of rotating exhibitions, innovative learning opportunities, a constantly changing 30-acre landscape of large-scale, outdoor, modern and contemporary sculpture, and site-specific installations.
DeCordova offers educational programming for families, included with admission – view event calendar.
