Schedule your trip
One: It is almost not possible to see everything in one trip, so you are planning to walk, bike or tramway through different areas, eat a coffee or take a break, take part in a trip or week-end meeting and make a payback to see more. It is recommended that you take at least two hrs to see a part of the Art Center.
On the way to Museum Hill we recommend to see the statues on the mound, the views, the visitor centre and the art gallery. It is not permitted to go on skis, tobogganing or snowshoeing. F: Why can't we move the sculpture? But although the statues stand outside and are exposed to the element, most of us do not know that the oil in our palms can cause irreversible damages to the work.
A part of our missions is to conserve the sculpture for coming generation and we ask for your work. F: Can I have a seat or climbing on the sculpture? The Gazebo for Two Anarchists by Siah Armajani is a sculpture that can be entered and walked over the bridge that connects the two chairs. The visitor is invited to enjoy the tied swings of She, a sculpture by Mark di Suvero.
Carpooling facilities such as Lyft and Uber are also available. To book a vehicle (at the train station), or take a cab (call in advance), please check zipcar.com/metro-north before your itinerary.
