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.

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.

Dress for a nice casual walk around the grounds. It is very impressive and a fun way to spend a morning or afternoon, Woodstock is nearby and also the Ashoka Reservoir also of interest if you want to spend a whole day.

We weren’t sure what to expect , having not read anything about it, and we were stunned and thrilled by the scale of this amazing environmental sculpture. You can walk all around it, climbing down to narrow paths with the constructed walls around you, or...More

Fun and interesting wondering around this poor fellow's 37-year obsession. Very different from anything I've seen. Not the most amazing place, but definitely qualifies as being unique.
