“Lovely spot”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

I moved to Arlington, bought a home and got married. Before marriage day, I got a haircut from James McGough. I knew nothing about Cyrus Dallin, and James got me interested. All these years later, the museum, launched through the efforts of James and others, is a lovely spot to go if you want to learn about the premiere sculptor who lived in town from 1900 to 1944. see some of his work and that of others. Enjoy.

“Amazing little museum”
Reviewed 20 October 2013

Stopped in by chance after walking by the place and got a semi-private tour of the museum by one of the founders of the place and learned a tremendous amount both about Cyrus Dallin and the surrounding area. Definitely worth the time.

“Small but Interesting”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

This house-museum is in the center of town. Someone driving from Cambridge to Lexington and Concord might enjoy a short time there, followed by a cool frozen yoghurt across the street. The 77 and 79 buses stop nearby and the Minuteman Bicycle Trail passes in front of it. Not a whole-day outing but a pleasant way to spend an hour.

“Daillin Museum a gem”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

When you visit Arlington, don't miss the Cyrus Dallin Art Museum, a gem of a spot in the Jefferson Cutter House in Arlington Center dedicated to the works of a renowned sculptor who lived in town from 1900 to 1944. His works include "The Great Spirit," which in front of the Boston Museum of Art, as well as the statue of Paul Revere on his horse, in Boston's North End.
