  • The outdoor sculptures are so fantastic and going in October was a perfect time because of the trees and the leaves. Make sure you have good walking shoes on and it is nice to go with a docent.

  • Great experience for the family. Nice vibes all around. All the employees we spoke to were friendly. Sculptures from small to HUGE, even some interactive. Nice easy walk. There are some nice trail options as well or simply walk the open field to some amazing pieces. Two draw backs to Storm King: Only one indoor restroom area by the indoor museum (all others are port-a-potty). And the Cafe was expensive for very basic food. Neither ended up deterring us from any fun as we mapped out our walk to hit the museum right before lunch. Which we also brought our own food to picnic outside. Plenty of benches, tables, beautiful sights, walking space, bicycle rentals, a tram for easier transportation throughout the park. Just a great way for the family to combine a museum and a park visit in one outing.
  • Perhaps the most sensational collection of sculptures in the country. The art is spectacular but the beautiful upstate landscape really did it for us. Would love to return and rent bicycles or attend an event (like an outdoor movie screening). Wonderful even in the rain. We recommend spending a few hours here. And bring good walking shoes.
  • An amazing experience of seeing installations spread across in a way that each one has its own setting in the huge open space. There are various options available to choose from walking to bike rentals. There is also a tram ride which takes you along the route to see most of the installations. It takes around 1 hour but is a great one on a super hot day. It stops for 5 min at few of the sites. You cannot take dogs along with you but a service dog is available so plan it accordingly. Also, there is a semi covered cafe available which has ready to eat sandwitches and drinks. The museum/ visitor centre has an interesting collection of books and varied gifting options. Highly recommend this place.
  • It's an art center, but it's also a beautiful park! Storm King Art Center is a great place to enjoy arts and nature, walking and talking together with family, friends, etc! I am happy to live in close (about an hour) to the center. Especially, I was impressed that every employee I met told me with smile, 'Thank you for coming.' I STRONGLY recommend people to visit Storm King Art Center. I am going to visit here again, hopefully every season.
  • Nice way to spend a day with family. Biking would have been a great way to see the whole park. Walked 3 miles and didn't see it all! Some uneven ground, hills, and distances would be a problem for anyone with mobility issues. Also, not much shade in some wide open areas. Overall, a beautiful setting with interesting pieces of art!
