deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum

At this 30-acre outdoor sculpture garden, kids can touch, and, in some cases, interact with the mega-scaled artwork, such as Paul Matissse’s Musical Fence, a low wall of aluminum pipes that “sing” when struck gently with sticks. Kids under 12 get in free and enjoy a roster of exhibit-inspired activities in a spacious children’s room adjacent to the gift shop.
