This sculpture park was intended to house the works of the designer, but the setting itself became the artist's masterwork. It is possible to visit by appointment on non-open days.

Opus 40 was quite amazing once you know the story behind it. To learn this it is important to watch the short video - about 6 min at the ticket office. Don't rush the visit - take your time and walk around the sculpture and...More

We visited on a beautiful autumn day. Such a wonderful tribute to a true natural artist. Incorporating the old quarry into your backyard took a labor of love. Bring a snack and a book and watch the leaves change

Had a lovely walk around with four kids ages 12,11, 7 and 7. It really is an amazing feat and we all enjoyed it even in the drizzle. Kids loved it and even managed to stick to the ‘walk don’t run’ and ‘no climbing’ rules...More

I mean, really. An artist works for nearly 40 years turning an abandoned quarry into an art installation that one can walk on and explore...What's not to love? Fascinating and inspiring. We were here on a lovely autumn day; this might be a tough activity...More

Opus 40 is well worth seeing. It is beautiful and serene. Lots of places to explore. A great place for a picnic or just a leisurely walk. Lots to see and a great spot for pictures.

Realy I was surprised. I read a few lines on what is Opus 40 before I visited, but I was not prepared to see this. It is unorthodox, bizzarre and in general very nice. I don't want to spoil your impressions, please visit. Thumbs up.

Carve out a half day to take your time to meander through these 6 acres of quiet beauty. The sculptor took 37 years to hand build this place. The view of the Catskills, the ponds, the sculpture and all the dry stone work makes this...More
