Founded in 1974, this modern art gallery is well-known for a highly unusual, permanent display by conceptual artist Walter De Maria. De Maria's work is a massive display of a 2 foot layer of dirt!

If you want to have an art experience I would recommend you give Dia a try. The setting is great and the time needed is reasonable. The exhibits are varied.

The converted print factory is a spectacular space to display the large collection of minimalist art. A lovely setting on the grounds with a good cafe

We have not been here before and are sorry we waited so long to come. It is open and modern. You don’t need lots of time and it is a place your kids will like.

Metro north does a train ticket + museum entry deal. You end up saving a couple of bucks. Short walk to the museum from the Beacon metro north station. Beautiful space, an old biscuit factory. Many interesting works. Definitely worth visits!

Housed in a former factory, this is a perfect place for a day trip from NYC. Beautifully designed space with lots of modern art. Well worth the trip on metro north

This place is great and I loved most (OK, *some*) of the displays but I would only recommend you visit if you're a contemporary art devotee or in the very least appreciator. It is not necessarily everyone's cup of tea and given it's out of...More
