Established in 1950, deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum is the largest park of its kind in New England encompassing 30 acres, 20 miles west of Boston. In 2009, deCordova changed its name from deCordova Museum and Sculpture Park to deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum to emphasize its renewed focus on sculpture and to support the institution’s goal of becoming a premier Sculpture Park. Providing a constantly changing landscape of large-scale, outdoor, modern and contemporary sculpture and site-specific installations, the Sculpture Park hosts more than 60 works, the majority of which are on loan to the Museum. Inside, the Museum features a robust slate of rotating exhibitions and innovative interpretive programming.
Patrons of deCordova can enjoy year round activities in the Sculpture Park and Museum, including snowshoe tours, yoga in the park, nature tours, curator and artist conversations, and many special talks, screenings, and events. deCordova is also home to Lincoln Nursery School, the first preschool embedded in a contemporary art museum in the United States.
NOTE: On Mondays and Tuesdays during winter, the Museum is closed and only the Sculpture Park is open 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
The Twisted Tree Café is now open at deCordova! The café currently serves beverages and bakery items, and will offer its full menu after the turn of the new year, 2022. For the remainder of the winter 2021 season, the cafe is open Tuesday-Sunday, 8AM-3PM.
