    So, so worth the trip from NYC! You can get return train + entry as a package from the ticket machines at Grand Central. Recommended to lovers of conceptual art on a big scale. And good café food!

    I live in awe of the Richard Serra ellipses. Go early so you can experience in relative quiet before the crowds. And wear quiet shoes!

    So many great Conceptual pieces — Sol Lewitt etc. Surprisingly fun for people who don't like art too!

    A beautiful place to spend the day. You can purchase a package with train tickets and museum entry at Grand Central. The cafe is great. Make sure to take advantage of a free tour!

    My favorite museum in the New York area and one of my top fives in the world. Housed in an old Nabisco box printing factory, their collection of Flavin, Serra Lewitt, and more is incredible.

    Amazing and interesting museum. Your mind will wander. Make sure you can enjoy minimalist modern art or you will be very bored. Floors are polished so good idea not to wear sneakers.

    A must-see for modern art aficionados. Don't miss the sculptures by John Chamberlain, wall drawings by Sol LeWitt, fluorescent light installations by Dan Flavin, and the Richard Serra pieces.

    Walk around and into Serra's Torqued Ellipses. Ponder the heaviness of the human condition and, only if you are up for it, the sheer frailty of existence and being.

    MTA has a great deal for a round trip ticket and admission to Dia coming from NYC. Take advantage during Summer Fridays

    Great collection of minimalist art, many are site specific installations making Dia a very special place. If you wear sneakers, your shoes may squeak on the polished cement floors.

    This amazing museum is easily accessible by train. It's a beautiful 80 minutes trip from Grand Central.
