    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.

    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.

    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.
