After years of hearing from various people how cool the de Cordova Sculpture Park & Museum was, we finally visited, using a museum pass from the library. (Ask at your local library – lots of Friends of the Library groups provide museum passes to local institutions so library users can get free or discounted admission.) It was a lovely, sunny, not-too-terribly-hot day, so we spent most of it in the sculpture park.
I didn’t take photos of everything we liked. The musical fence was a neat one, appealing for all ages, and there was a piece that looked like a large branch or piece of driftwood set upright that made an interesting shape against the sky. Here are some others:
It seems like a sculpture park would be a great way to get young kids interested in art, more so than walking around a museum. However, it’s not a playground: there is absolutely no climbing on the art.
Dogs are welcome in the sculpture park, which is also pretty cool. We left Sudo at home for our first outing, but we may bring her if we go back, weather permitting.
