  • The extensive grounds of Storm King Art Center make it an excellent location for a day that you want to get out and walk amongst both beautiful scenery and a variety of artistic installments. This has a bit of something for everyone of all ages and abilities. The tram will take you around the grounds if you have issues walking and kids have TONS of room to run and play without worrying about destroying the art work (though you need to make sure they only touch where it is allowed). Only about an hour from New York City, it's definitely worth it for a day trip to get out of the city and into a more relaxing environment.
  • This destination has been on my New York State bucket list for years. My day trip was everything I had hoped for and more. The autumn weather and foliage proved to be a perfect backdrop for my stroll across the vast Center. I didn't arrive early enough to cover all 500 acres, but I easily saw more than half of the exhibits. The eclectic art exhibits ranged from life-sized to simply gigantic. Easily inspiring creativity, imagination and wonder for the entire family. Tip: Pack a lunch and have a picnic on the great grounds, or purchase lunch on the premises.
  • This place is a must to visit at least once! The nature and landscape are magnificent by itself, and in addition, there are so many amazing, huge, different modern art sculptures! Just choose the sunny day, get you family/friends, and make sure to come for the whole day! Couple of tips: 1. There is a cafe that sells food(soup, sandwiches, etc) and wine and beer! 2. You can rent a bike there (around $8 per hour) 3. You can pay both cash and card, and there is a discount for students, don't forget the IDs.
  • 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.
  • What a Lovely place, specially in the fall. I recommend go earlier in the morning, after 12pm on weekends there is a line of cars to enter in the park and if you want rent a bike you might not find on available or have to wait for it.
