This 500 acre outdoor sculpture garden was worth the two hour trip. Be prepared for a lot of walking. The trams and indoor exhibits are closed. The grounds are well designed with beautiful vistas.

Came in the fall to enjoy a beautiful day and the changing leaves. We had to bus from a nearby train station. It was well organized and fast given the social distancing guidelines. The facility is lovely. It is one of my favorite places that I have visited. The art work is stunning. It is all well organized on the amazingly beautiful grounds. I look forward to returning.

Storm King is a fascinating place to visit, with so many amazing sculptures in a unique setting. We visited on a chilly and blustery day, which presented some challenges that other visitors may also face. The museum provides a map as well as a link to an audio guide, which we thought would make us well equipped. But although some of the art has plaques that identify the work and artists, not all of them do, and the audio guide only features certain works, as is true in many museums. But there are no identifying numbers, and no order to the works. Try to consult a physical map on a windy day, and then try to coordinate it with the audio guide — it did not work. Anyone who has visited an art museum has seen numbers with the symbol for an audio guide, which makes it easy to connect with the information about a particular work. But Storm King does not make this an easy prospect. My advice to visitors who have a reservation on a cold or windy day is to dress warmly, download the audio guide ahead of time so that you are not trying to do it out in the elements, and I wish you luck!

We were lucky to get tickets due to covid restrictions and it was definitely worth it. It was a beautiful afternoon spent wandering around the park enjoying the art and the peaceful setting. what little contact we had with the staff found them very pleasant and eager to help us.

I've always wanted to visit Storm King but in the past scheduling hasn't worked out. One weekend morning, I made it to the street leading to the entrance but traffic was at a standstill so I turned around and went home. I was finally able to visit last week. After reopening during COVID, they started reservation-only visiting which worked exceptionally well. You go online and book an hour-window to arrive. You pay for the amount of people in your car...$20 for single...$30+ for two people...etc... They warn not to arrive before your alotted time. I arrived at 10:10 for my 10-11 AM Wednesday reservation. You first enter a smaller parking that loops you around to a staff member who scans your ticket through your window...then you are directed to the main lot. Masks are required anywhere you can't social distance and this place is huge so...its pretty impossible not to social distance. I think the liited reservation system helps greatly also. Kudos to the Art Center for implementing such a system. There are bathrooms near the parkng lots as well as some vending machines which sells drinks, snacks and even t shirts. There is hand sanitizer near all of the bathroom (port a potty) stations. The Art Center is massive with lots to see. There are sculptures of all types and sizes. Make sure you read each plaque, located near each sculpture to see the name of the sculpture, artist and other information. Be sure to take a map and plan out your path. I am a fairly fast walker and was able to see 90% of the sculptures in about 3 hours taking over 15,000 steps. The terrain there is a mixture of paved paths and grassy/dirt areas. You will need to venture onto the grass/dirt to see some of the sculptures. Some areas are very hilly so be sure to wear comfortable shoes. Also, be mind ful of the bugs...though not overwhelming, they are noticeable, especially in the grassy/tree areas.There were a few benches near the parking lot but no other common areas where you can eat unless you pick a spot of the grass. There is a visitor's center that is currently closed due to COVID. I highly recommend this place to everyone. Lots to see and you can easily spend a day there.
