The facility is top notch - huge and lots of natural light. It was a Nabisco box factory at one time. If you enjoy contemporary art they have a great selection of artists, with a focus on sculpture and sculptural works produced between the 1960s and 2000s. Great place to spend an afternoon.

If you are a fan of modern art, you must love the exhibition in Dia:Beacon. The artists are creative and attentive to present their ideas of life, reality or imagination. We also recommend to visit Cold Spring on the same trip which is a great place for hiking.

We love this art museum. It is near by, no trip to NYC necessary. The last Sunday of he month is free for local residents to enjoy classic modern/contemporary art. This time we visited the facility it seemed cold with very low lighting. Maybe it was the season or just to protect the art. Anyway, it was difficult to see some of the details. But over all a good experience.

I like art museums but sometimes they can be dull or puzzling. The art displayed at this one is astounding in size and impact. Helpful cards are available to explain more about the artist and why the work was done. I would return (all the way from California) just to go again. Took train up from NYC. There are package deals that save a few $ if you buy RT train ticket and museum admission together at the train station. Also, you won't have to wait in the admission line when you get to the museum. Dia and the main part of town are an easy walk from the station. Museum is much larger than it appears when you first arrive so plan for 1-2 hours to see everything. We went in winter so the grounds were not in bloom but even so it looked like a pretty area to enjoy relaxing after touring the museum. Be sure to go all the way to the waterfall at the end of town. The Roundhouse At Beacon is a good place for refreshment with a view of the falls.

Went to Dia yesterday. It was a beautiful day.....sunny in the 60's in Mid January!! I have been to Dia before. It is a fantastic venue to view art. And they do a great job of displaying the work. I honestly am not a huge fan of contemporary art, but I always find some interesting things to look at when I come here. It is definitely worth visiting.
