Kaatskill Kaleidoscope

5340 New York 28, Mount Tremper, New York 12457 USA

“psychedelic silo kaleidoscope”

America’s Largest Kaleidoscope has been mesmerizing guests since 1996. The silo is over 56 feet tall and is a multi-media presentation that wows audiences with brilliant moving images and theater-quality sound.  The overall kaleidoscope concept was designed by award winning kaleidoscope artist Charles Karadimos.  The specially-created video used as the imagery for the kaleidoscope was designed by Isaac Abrams, a pioneer in the psychedelic art movement of the 60’s, and his son, Raphael, a computer artist. Accompanying the visuals is a musical score by Gary Burke, a local composer and drummer who has worked with Frances Ford Coppola and Bob Dylan.  Listen for hints of folk, jazz, big band, psychedelic rock and patriotic grandeur. Better than the Fourth of July! The video’s 3-dimensional effect is created using a tapered, three-mirror system.  Each mirror is 37 feet tall and weighs 2.5 tons. Combined, they form a precise pyramid tapering from 15 feet at the bottom to 5 feet at the top.  They reflect a constantly evolving virtual sphere with a 50 foot radius.

Not much to do besides the kaleidoscope show, but it's definitely something you won't find anywhere else. Worth the $5!

The Kaleidoscope sign is obscured from the road, so look for the Emerson shops and pull in. The show is a rather trippy history told on a kaleidoscope screen, best viewed lying on the floor. The Gallery has some beautiful work of art kaleidoscopes, but is not kid friendly. There is a more child accessible area though where you can buy toys and games.
