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

My boyfriend and I, on a beautiful day, decided to stop by and see Opus 40. We had a hard time finding it because of the signs, but then finally found it. As we were driving through the small parking lot a man stepped out in front of our car, cell phone pressed to his ear, and yelled/gestured for us... More

This has to be one of the coolest finds we have made. When ever I'm on a scouting trip with the boys we look for something cool in the area to go see on the way home as a side trip since we are already out and usually in no real rush to get home. It was a beautiful October... More

Poor signage, pointed us in the wrong direction, there was a barking terrier that bit my leg, the owner yelled at us for not knocking on the unmarked door and paying our $20 each right away, didn't seem overly concerned about the dog that bites, said she hates dogs anyway, then finally admitted the dog was hers

We travelled in late October and the fall foliage was still in abundance. When arriving at Opus 40, you must go to registration first. The cost for adults is, $10 per person. We then went into the museum, which holds all the tools Harvey Fite used to build this amazing sculpture garden. Amazing that a man spent 37 years building... More

We stumbled upon Opus 40 while in Woodstock. Amazing man made stone work with walkways and statues. Bring lunch and enjoy this quiet stone sanctuary. We will be back

Nice to see the damaged section of the wall has been repaired. This place never ceases to amaze me. So much time, effort, and thought must have gone into this work. Boggles the mind.

We first read of Opus 40 in the New York Times about a year ago and planned a trip around visiting Opus 40 because of that.

Fascinating work by one man - art Professor Harvey Fite. Be sure you go on a good weather day to enjoy views and walking grounds. Check out video before walking grounds. Entrance and parking can be hard to find. No public restrooms.

Sadly we drove to this location only to feel very unwelcome. With no clear signage about parking or an admission fee, we parked our car next to another one and proceed to try and figure out what to see. From a distance a woman started yelling at us about paying the admission fee and that we we had to move... More
