I wanted to getaway on MLK Jr. day, so I decided to make the 90 minute trip to Dia: Beacon. My 2-year-old, wife and I, paid the $24 admission fee for two and checked out the place. We toured the place in 20 minutes.
If you are an art buff, the exhibits might be spectacular. The place is spaceous, neat and artsy.
If you are an average guy looking to see something new, this might be OK for you. It could be a good place to take a date - if she's an art buff.
If you are the average father with a family, who is not really into art, skip it. I try to keep an open mind, but some of the exhibits, such as the squares with "Bottom Left Corner" written on the bottom left corners of them failed to impress me.
I might have enjoyed the place more if the weather was warm, so I could walk around the property. However, on a cold winter day in Beacon, this failed to be my highlight. My highlight was going to Max's on Main - the only restaurant open at the time.
