    Storm King is an open-air museum containing what is perhaps the largest collection of contemporary outdoor sculptures in the United States. Founded in 1960 by Ralph E. Ogden as a museum for Hudson River School paintings, it soon evolved into a major sculpture venue with works from some of the most acclaimed artists of our time. The site spans approximately 500 acres & comprises more than 100 sculptures by some of the most acclaimed artists of our era. Works at Storm King encompass the years from post-World War II to the present and include gifts, acquisitions, specially commissioned site-specific works, and loans. While the focus of the collection has been on large-scale abstract sculpture, much of it in steel, it also includes figurative work and sculpture in stone, earth, and other materials.

    Storm King rents bicycles and provides free trams for visitors with limited mobility and young children, who may be given priority over other visitors. Trams run approximately every 30 minutes from 11:00 am to 4:30 pm. Visitors may disembark, walk, and re-board at designated points throughout the grounds. Those who can walk are encouraged to explore Storm King on foot.
