  • Not a huge abstract art fan...but it was a lovely day strolling the grounds. Lots of hills and unpaved paths to keep in mind. But the views unparalleled. We jumped on a tram and got a overview knowing...  read more »
  • I loved the grounds and the enormous sculptures. I am sure it is amazing in great weather, but when we went it was a grey and misty day which I think added to the mystery of walking around and truly e...  read more »
  • I was very disappointed, mainly because of the lack of signage and the difficulty of finding any given sculpture. There is a map with a number for each sculpture, and next to it a list of the sculptur...  read more »
  • The vision of the Storm King Art Center is to unite large-scale, modern sculpture and the landscape. Spread across 500 acres of fields and woods are an amazing array of modern sculptures that range from naturalistic grass covered mounds of earth created to resemble sand dunes to giant welded metal abstractions. Regardless of what you think about modern sculptural art, you can't but marvel at the beautiful setting of lush meadows, luxurious lawns and majestic woods.
  • So I'm not a big fan of the art or the uptight folks that spend hours discussing a square hunk of metal. Also the entry fee a bit of a ripoff. That said, the grounds themselves are amazing displays of nature. That and the giant Buddha is pretty cool.
  • I had a great day with my boyfriend. Next time we will remember to pack a lunch because there is no food!!! But it was a nice time regardless. If you like art and the great outdoors you'll love Storm King.
  • The Art is great. BUT the staff are a bunch of weirdos. Literally felt like a cult. They all pushed us out 20 min before close, and while were packing up the entire staff stood in a circle and stared at us in the parking lot. It was some weird stuff. Stay away from these people. There real creepy.
  • Best visited and experienced during autumn for leaf peeping (the leaves change a variety of beautiful, rich colors). Leave from PABT if you don't have a car.
