Looking for a fun, new way to explore the Sculpture Park this winter? Try snowshoeing! For ages 8 to adult, it's also a great family activity.

It's fun: It appeals to anyone who wants to enjoy nature in winter. Plus, snowshoeing can be a social activity. Families, adults, beginners and seasoned snowshoers alike can all enjoy the sport together.

It's easy: If you enjoy walking, then you can snowshoe! Snowshoes offer more control than skiing and a trained EMS instructor will give beginners instruction on stance, pole usage, etc.

If you have never been snowshoeing, you are in for a treat. It lets you enjoy nature and the beauty of deCordova in spectacular form.

Cost includes snowshoe instruction, a guided Sculpture Park tour, and museum admission. Tours are approximately 90 minutes and are led by a trained deCordova Museum Guide and an EMS instructor.

  • Adults: $15 Members, $25 Not Yet Members + $12 for snowshoe rental
  • Youth 8-18: $12 Members, $20 Not Yet Members + $12 for snowshoe rental

All tours are weather permitting and subject to cancellation.
