This sculpture park was intended to house the works of the designer, but the setting itself became the artist's masterwork. It is possible to visit by appointment on non-open days.

Opus 40 is a interesting place. Artist bought a old quarry and built rock walls and formations with the stone. The museum part where they had the hand tools that he used was pretty interesting. When we were there the were having rock carving classes and music concerts are there occasionally. Interesting place to wander through. Would not go if... More

One of those rare hidden gems, clearly a labour of love which took many years to build. Perhaps the $10 admission was a dollar or two more than we would have liked but it is hard to put a price on this kind of experience.

Based on the reviews, I was expecting something more. The stone construction is interesting with its different levels, stairs, narrow walkways, etc. However, the main structure is really the majority of what you see in the entire place. It calls itself a sculpture park, but there are only a handful of sculptures. The $10 admission fee was a bit steep,... More

Quite amazing! Nothing can prepare you for the momentous work, skill, vision and passion that went into making this work of art in stone in the middle of the Catskills mountains. Meander your way through the stone corridors, over the mounds, across the walkways and study the skill with which the stones have been shaped and fitted together! Helping us... More

Our built environment is largely created for practical reasons -- to bring us water, transport us, or provide shelter or food. This one feeds our imagination with an amazing display of stone sculpture. Worth a visit, good for the mind.

This site is truly amazing. 38 years in the making, it's almost impossible to get your mind around what it must have taken, not just physically but mentally to do this much work. This is a great side trip when in the area. There's a museum of the tools used by the quarry men with lots of various instruments used... More

We visited Opus 40 in the height of the fall colors of 2014 and we still talk about it as being one of the very highest points and most wonderful days of our trip so I decided to share about it. We have been travelling in an RV for 14 months and this was awe inspiring, peaceful, meditative, and just... More
