Storm King's many acres of rolling hills are alive with massive sculptures of metal, stone and earth. In addition to the impressive collection of 'normal sized' pieces in the museum housed in the 1935 Normandy style stone house that also serves a visitor center, the hundred acres of grounds form a careful, but brilliantly unfussy lay-out for massive works --...

Drove from NYC. Arrived around 1pm and stayed three and a half hours. We walked the entire park and enjoyed every minute. We did not rent bikes or ride the tram. Tram seemed to come very regularly - we just preferred to walk and enjoy the fall day. The scale of the grounds and sculptures is amazing. We had lunch... More

I went up with friends for the first time this fall, and I will definitely be back! The leaves were gorgeous, first of all. The drive was not too bad from NYC - maybe 1.5 hours? And there was way more art and ground to cover than you could do in one relaxed day. Next time, I will bring portable... More

If you have a car and take up the trip from NYC to go shopping spend a couple of hours at this huge sculpture park. Great place to walk especially in the fall. They have trolleys but not enough so avoid weekends and holidays. A bit overpriced to get in.

Beautiful sculpture park, very spread out, so lots of walking. Easy to get lost, but can be fun. The sculptures were very large and interesting. I think it is a great one day trip on a beautiful fall day.

I was blown away at the scale of the art pieces and the huge size of the park. We barely saw a quarter of it. The setting is amazing among beautiful rolling hills with views of the surrounding mountains. It's a little over an hour from NYC. You can take the train, bus, or drive. Check their website for options.... More

I have made an annual visit to this sculpture park for the past 4 years. There are permanent and temporary exhibits so there is always something new to see. Many well-known artists are represented here such as Alexander Calder, Richard Serra, Maya Lin, Henry Moore, Isamu Noguchi, Sol LeWitt. If you go in the autumn, you get the added pleasure... More

Storm King Art Center is home to over 100 installations on 500 acres. The center is well organized and it took us 3 leisurely hours to walk through the center. There is a tram tour and also bikes to rent if you don't want to walk. I recommend walking if you like to take photos. The collection is weighted towards... More
