    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.

    Plan to spend a good portion of your day here having your mind blown by conceptual minimalist art

    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.

    I obviously broke the rule, but... No photos allowed. Sad. Great place, though.

    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 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 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.
