Light. Space. Art. Originally a 300,00 square foot Nabisco box factory, now converted to a major destination for fun viewing modern art. Right next to the train station if coming in from New York City, an easy walk, and well worth the scenic train ride up. Love the visit, allow at least two hours. A definite must see if visiting the area.Recommended for:

The word that comes to mind is "astounding". Grand in scale and achievement, DIA: presents extremely large installations in a renovated factory the size of several football fields. Perhaps the best idea of scale is to talk about the Richard Serra pieces in the mezzanine, which are each the size of two boxcars on top of each other--and there are four of them in a row. If you see nothing else, experience these giant metal sculptures that invite you to explore their maze-like interiors. The mezzanine is only about a third the width of its the actual space, and there are four floors. DIA: has to be experienced--a world-class art museum with installations you'll find nowhere else. If you think you don't care for contemporary art, just come, suspend judgment, and let these big, powerful pieces wash over you; it's an experience not to be missed.Recommended for:
