The enormity of it alone lends Storm King a unique atmosphere. The beautiful acreage of the Center contains more than 120 large, abstract sculptures, many of which have been created by some of this century's greatest sculptors.

Among the works are Free Ride Home by Kenneth Snelson, and Momo Taro, a 40 ton granite sculpture by Isamu Noguchi that is considered one of the artist's finest outdoor works. These and other great works are presented within the dramatic slopes and peaks near Storm King Mountain.

A 1935 French Norman-style building houses an information desk, gift shop and the Museum. These galleries exhibit other works, including part of the changing exhibitions that take place throughout the season. A major Annual Sculpture Exhibition within the indoor and outdoor galleries includes loans from museums, artists, and private collections.

A beautiful backdrop for the exhibits is the Mountainville Conservancy of Storm King Art Center, which includes 2,300 acres of Schunnemunk Mountain, two miles west of the Museum. This also provides a protected habitat for indigenous flora and fauna, with more than 20 miles of marked trails for the enjoyment of hikers, naturalists, photographers, and people who simply enjoy the outdoors.

Storm King Art Center offers great opportunities for family outings. A full calendar of special events, lectures, hikes, concerts, and other activities presents a great opportunity for education and fun.
