There is plenty of free parking in our main and upper lots.
We may seem far away, but really the Museum is only 40 minutes south of Boston, on Route 24, exit 18B, one exit past IKEA. Stop by on your trip to or from Cape Cod. Click here for directions and a map.
Experience Art and Nature
In a city so spirited, urban, and diverse, Fuller Craft’s serene 22-acre campus provides a rare combination for people looking to experience art, culture, and the natural environment all in one idyllic setting. The Museum is surrounded by over 700 acres of scenic woodland and the brilliant architectural landscape of Frederick Law Olmstead’s D.W. Field Park in Brockton, MA. We like to call it the lost gem of Boston’s Emerald Necklace. The Museum’s award-winning 21,000 square foot building, sculpture garden, courtyards, and nature trails (like Caroline’s Pathway) provide a serene getaway. With high ceilings, wide corridors, slate floors, natural wood beams, and myriad floor-to-ceiling-windows—there is an abundance of natural light and atmosphere that blurs the line between indoor and outdoor beauty.

As you drive up Oak Street to Fuller Craft Museum and as you enter the grounds, you encounter works of art unexpectedly around every corner, behind every tree it seems. Several of Fuller Craft’s outdoor artists use the materials from nature, such as wood and stone. Before you come, print out this List of Outdoor Sculptures and give yourself a preview of our outdoor collection. Then come roam the grounds and discover them in person.
The lure of hidden treasure is difficult to resist. At Fuller Craft, the letterboxes were hidden with the intention of introducing treasure hunters to the natural beauty of the grounds, as well as to bring attention to outdoor sculptures that can be easily overlooked. The Museum provides a beautiful setting for families and adults to seek out the hidden boxes by following simple clues. Along the way, treasure hunters can learn more about the flora and fauna they encounter from the clues they decipher. Click here for a list of letterboxing hints or letterboxing instructions.
