Cyrus Dallin Art Museum

Art Museum

Discover the work of Cyrus Dallin (1861-1944), a celebrated American sculptor, educator, and Indigenous rights activist who lived and worked in Arlington, Massachusetts for over forty years. Best known for the iconic Appeal to the Great Spirit and Paul Revere Monument in Boston, Dallin's many public sculptures bring beauty and a unique historical perspective to shared spaces across the nation. In the intimate setting of the Cyrus Dallin Art Museum, visitors experience over ninety artworks spanning the sculptor's sixty-year career. These include portrayals of Indigenous peoples, Anglo-European figures, family members and friends; casts and prototypes of public monuments and memorials; and coins, medals, and paintings. The Museum's comprehensive exhibits ground Dallin's unique body of work within the context of his commitment to artistic expression, education, and Indigenous rights.

The Dallin Museum is open for tours by appointment for groups of three or fewer on Saturdays and Sundays. Suggested donation, $5 per person. Please contact Nancy Blanton at or call 781-641-0747 to schedule a tour. Public health protocols, such as social distancing, mask-wearing, and sanitizing, are being maintained to ensure the safety of our visitors and docents.

Despite the unpredictability of life in the months ahead, please know that our commitment to sharing Dallin's inspiring art and legacy with our community remains constant. Your support allows us to make this work possible, and it is what will sustain the Museum through this very difficult time. Donate to the Museum's Annual Appeal or purchase a gift membership at
