This sculpture park was intended to house the works of the designer, but the setting itself became the artist's masterwork.

When it warms up I am coming here! I am going to pack a lunch (maybe some wine) and read a book, bring the boyfriend or something. Beautiful area with mountain views and history. Research prior to visiting and you will be wow'd.

We enjoyed exploring the grounds and are amazed how the quarry was transformed into such an unique sculpture.

Opus 40 is the life work of Harvey Fite (1903-1976) It is an amazing stone sculpture park. I live nearby and bring visitors there all the time. You can walk around and see amazing large works of art. Don't miss it if in the area.

$10 to get in and we were expecting so much more. The monolith and surrounding area are amazing but there is not much else to see. There are maybe 5 pieces of sculpture on the grounds and that's about it.

I didn't have much time to wander the paths or climb around the rocks so we just looked around at what we could see w/o paying.i can't remember how much it was,maybe $10. Or $12. ,which seemed too much if one doesn't have time to enjoy all it has to offer,or have the right shoes on

Opus 40 is not exactly on the main tourist’s routes of the Hudson River Valley, but I it was easier to find than I thought with great signs pointing to the way from route 9W. Parking is on a dirt/gravel area around the trees and restrooms are portable potties. Otherwise, it is pretty much what you would expect, a large... More

My wife and I are senior citizens. We visited Opus 40 with our daughter and son-in-law and their two young children. All of us enjoyed Opus 40 very much--the adults because of Harvey Fite's amazing work and the beauty of the area; the children because of the places to explore and the chance to build their own stone "sculptures."

This is a wonderful place to visit such fine art work done by just one man. Beautiful sculptures, stonework and a museum that houses some wonderful art and all the quarrymans tools.
