    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.

    One of the best day trips from the city. Take Metro-North along the Hudson Walk slowly through one of the Serra 'torqued ellipses' and watch it get dark...twice!

    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.

    This museum is amazing! Make sure you grab a description card just outside each room. Gives a nice description of the artist and the background of the art.

    A mecca for anyone who loves Minimalism and Conceptualism. It's like nothing you've ever experienced, all in one space...

    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!

    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.

    Lots of emperor's new clothes stuff here. Don't come if you don't like wondering whether something is art or just a place-holder for art to be put up later.

    The collection is a bit crazy, but the bookstore is terrific. Well worth a visit.

    One of the greatest art pilgrimages w/in an easy distance of NYC. Take the train to the former Nabisco factory & spend a day in a Minimalist Mecca. The Heizers are spectacular, but so are the Serras.

    Beautiful building and a lovely train ride here. But the collection appears to be a high concept spoof about how bad most abstract art is and the dangers of smugness and pretension in the art world

    Come just to wander and admire the space itself. The art is just a bonus!

    The collection and the space are incredible. After seeing the artwork, do take the time to go out to the little garden off the right side of the entrance.

    A magical experience. Reminds me of the Danish museum of modern art, Louisiana. Definitely worth the train ride out of the city. And very easy as well.

    Speaking of Beacon, taking the time to take in the art at this outpost of Dia will be time well spent. Sitting amongst the Andy Warhol's alone will make you feel like you're one with art history.

    Located right on the shores of the Hudson River, art lovers and nature enthusiasts alike get a lot out of a trip to Dia, especially with its wide range of exhibitions, large book shop, and cafe.

    Large-scale works by Dan Flavin, Richard Serra & Andy Warhol are on display in this converted Nabisco factory that’s now on the National Register of Historic Places. Free tours on Saturdays at 1 p.m.
