  • Storm King is a vast space full of modern sculptures . I liked walking around the bigger pieces . There was a tram service for transport. We had light snacks in our backpacks and sat down near one...

  • I was at Storm King the last Sunday in April. It was great. We took the 7:30 AM train from Grand Central Station to Beacon and then took an Uber to Windsor. There aren't a lot of Uber drivers...

  • this is such a great place for a getaway from the busy city life. you can rent cycles and pedal through the entire land or you can choose to walk. i recommend buying tickets in advance to ensure your entry as I made the mistake of not buying tickets and driving hours to get there and having to turn back. the ginormous art pieces are so fun to look at. this is a great place for nature lovers, art enthusiasts, and truly for everyone!!
  • We enjoyed the sculptures and our visit overall. If you're planning a visit, I hope you find the info below useful: 1. Timed-entry tickets must be booked in advance via their website. No tickets sold on-site. We arrived 15 minutes before our chosen entry time and they let us in without problems. 2. The outdoor space is huge and requires a lot of walking. We're in relatively good shape but it still took us two hours to see everything. The terrain is not completely flat and is muddy in places. The tram and rental bikes were not available during our visit (they don't allow visitors to bring their own bikes). Call ahead to inquire what's available on the day of your visit. And since you'll be outdoors, it's always a good idea to check weather conditions before arriving. 3. Restrooms are few and far between. The one closest to our parking lot was a portable toilet that we didn't feel comfortable using. 4. Bring your own food and drinks. The food stalls were not open during our visit.
