Amazing museum, full of natural lights and plenty of space. Very relaxing
Come just to wander and admire the space itself. The art is just a bonus!
Art, walk and Main Street. Try beacon pantry for wine and cheese
Super nice for a day trip during the fall
Fall is a really beautiful time to visit

Great art cool trip
Surprisingly inspirational. Take the tour, you won't regret it. #jean-Marc
perfect museum. sol lewitt is a mad genius
Great outing from NYC
Still one of my most favorite art museums in the world.
This place is bigger then I thought it would be. Lots of interesting contemporary are with a good book store and cafe. Nice to have a museum like this so close by.
The space may be better than the contents.
Splendid sober museum after a great train ride.
Unique modern art museum that is totally worth the train ride up the hudson
Mind Blown. Life Made. Go get some.
Art and coffee
Go out if town to see the Carl Andre exhibition whilst the trees are still in their best autumnal galore

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.
One of the biggest modern art museums in the country. Great day trip from NYC.
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.
Enjoy the downtown too
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.
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.
Great view of the Hudson River and Beacon Bidge
nice day trip - the bottom of the museum was my favorite
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.
I'm sorry, but this place is such a waste of amazing gallery/museum space.
Great contemporary works here. Check out the book store!
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
Walk inside the Serra sculptures. It's a claustrophobic but fantastic expierence.
Try the locally made Popsicles in the cafe, passion fruit strawberry is awesome
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.
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.
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.
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.
Modern art is modern art.
There is a bike rack, it's just hidden behind the cafe building.
Set up an appointment to come at 10:30am (30 min. before it opens); you can walk around heizer's negative sculptures.
