My favourite museum to visit in the entire world isn’t even technically a museum at all. It’s 500 acres of rolling hills, woodlands, and green fields that holds one of the best collections of large scale sculpture and land art in the world. It’s about an hour north of New York City. One of best times to visit is during the autumn when the leaves change colours and the entire site itself becomes a natural work of art, and the man-made sculptures take a back seat to the great artist Mother Nature herself. I’ve visited Storm King often, but I love taking others there, and it was on such an occasion in 2012 that I invited some friends from an internet science fiction community to take a day trip from New York City to spend the day there, roaming the grounds, admiring art, and enjoying a picnic. This visit was fortunately during the peak foliage season when the colours are at their most vivid.
