Trams: Storm King’s tram service remains suspended while we assess what enhancements we can make to our tram program when we return to full site operations later in the year. In the meantime, Storm King is pleased to offer Accessible Driving Tours for visitors with a disability or others who may need an alternative to walking the grounds. Please visit the calendar page for dates and tour details.
Wheelchairs: Visitors who use wheelchairs are requested to use the paved paths around the site. Paved paths are indicated on the map, and Visitor Services staff can help suggest routes that avoid steep terrain. Wheelchairs are available for use free of charge on a first-come, first-served basis and can be requested from a staff member on arrival.

While Storm King’s staff engages in maintenance and landscape management, visitors must be aware of the natural surroundings, including fallen and falling limbs, insects, reptiles, wild animals, mud, water hazards, steep slopes, and loose and uneven surfaces.

General Visitor Policies
Weather and Ticket Refunds: Storm King is an outdoor site and is open rain or shine. While we do not close for inclement weather, in the case of passing severe weather we may advise visitors to temporarily shelter in designated locations around the site. If there is extensive severe weather, such as a hurricane, we will close and refund tickets.
Service Animals: Storm King welcomes service animals as defined under ADA Title II and III. This is limited to dogs that have been individually trained to do work or perform tasks for a person with a disability. Emotional support animals, pets, or any other animals are not considered service animals under the ADA and therefore not permitted. Service animals in training may be permitted with prior approval, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
No Smoking: Smoking, including electronic cigarettes, are not permitted on Storm King’s grounds.
Personal Bikes: Storm King does not allow the use of personal bicycles, scooters, skateboards, or hover boards for reasons of liability and congestion on pathways.

Use of drones or any aerial vehicles at Storm King or over Storm King’s air space is not permitted.
Sculpture Conservation: Help us preserve Storm King’s collection for future generations. Even natural oils of clean hands can damage the surfaces of sculptures. Please enjoy our long and native grass fields, but do not stand in these areas. Touching, walking on, or climbing on works of art is prohibited at this time. A small number of interactive sculptures will be cordoned off to reinforce this measure.
Picnicking: You are welcome to bring in food and use the designated picnic areas located adjacent to the North and South parking areas. Please adhere to physical distancing (6 ft.) between groups in the picnic area and dispose of your trash and recyclables properly. Blankets are permitted on the lawn in both picnic areas, away from the sculptures. Please be respectful of other visitors and operations. Do not hold picnic tables, bring tents, furniture, cooking equipment, or play audible music.
Strollers: Strollers are allowed and most strollers are suitable for the gravel roads around the property. Due to the varied, sometimes hilly, terrain, heavy-duty strollers are encouraged. Strollers are not allowed in the Galleries of the Museum Building.
