“A great little museum - Cyrus Dallin lived an interesting life”
Reviewed 7 August 2012

Cyrus Dallin lived an interesting life. He was born in Utah and then moved east. The museum is a small one but there is always a guide there to tell you the history of the artist and show you the various pieces of artwork. It is free to go through the museum, which makes it a great little place to go. It's located in a little park in Arlington that is shaded and has old railroad ties running though it - a great little space to hang out with kids. Don't forget to read the marker near the corner near Wood and Strings - it tells an amazing story.

“Little Museum”
Reviewed 28 July 2012

This is a really small museum. Things are crowded together and there isn't much to see. The parking is quite limited on Mass. Ave. If you need a cane to walk, this could be a difficult place to go. There are two levels with steep stairs.

“Cyrus E. Dallin Art Museum”
Reviewed 18 December 2002

The Cyrus E. Dallin Art Museum offers a great tribute to the late Sculpture who captured the spirit of New England and the American west. Most visitors to Boston are familiar with Dallin's "Paul Revere" located in front of the North Church and his "Appeal to the Great Spirit" located in front of the MFA. With four galleries, the museum provides a comprehensive overview of the Sculpter's life and works.

The museum is located at One Whittemore Park, in the Jefferson Cutter House at thecorner of Massachusetts Avenue and Mystic Street, in Arlington Center. It is
open Sunday through Monday from noon until four. Admission is free.
