A bit outside of Boston, but a great venue for an event. Interesting spaces inside and out.

This is a fantastic and beautiful Sculpture Park and Museum. We went there in April and it was still chilly. The trees still did not have leaves out. It must be even more beautiful at the height of spring. Exhibits are pretty whimsical and fun (some are bizarre). I want to visit there again when I go to Boston.

As a sculpture museum, deCordova isn't the most impressive or extensive, but as a part park, part hiking trail, part outside museum where pets are welcomed and strollers can move freely about and a place with lots of space and interesting (and arguably strange) sculptures to keep kids interested and their movements unrestricted, deCordova is a fantastic place to spend an afternoon on a beautiful summer day.

deCordova sits on 30 acres of land with a conservation area with a hiking trail/conservation area in its back leading to the roads and facing the gorgeous flint pond. The main building of the museum was originally Julian de Cordova's castle, where lectures, temporary exhibitions and certain indoor activities are held. The outside sculptures are scattered around the entire park, the sculptures are quite cleverly arranged, some are integrated with the surrounding trees as part of the representation, or in a way where the sculpture utilizes the terrain of the museum and some are exaggerated extensions of the surrounding nature they represent. The sculptures themselves are quite unique, some of them are wonderfully artistic - graceful lines that frames a woman's face, some are awkwardly bizarre - two beautifully shaped hearts with a closer look have all sorts of surprises melting into them; some are amazingly interactive, the gigantic sized vertical xylophone where everyone can be a musician on that spot.

Aside from the museum, there is a picnic area for a casually packed family lunch, a few hiking trails leading to either the back roads or the flint pond for a little nature getaway.

The only downside for me (thus the 4 star) is that this collection is not huge for someone who's only there for the art and the lack of descriptions on the plaques of the sculptures

A huge outdoor sculpture park, the Decordova has a rotation of unique sculptures that range from small pieces that blend into the surroundings (like the stacks of old newspapes with a garden growing on top) to massive structures that you'll see a mile away (like the huge red guy half buried in the ground). If you've made it this far out of Boston, it's certainly worth a stroll.
