Dia:Beacon is a contemporary art museum that rests on the shores of the Hudson River, conveniently located a short drive or train ride north of the hustle and bustle of New York City. Past the well-manicured lawns and inside the modest building live a collection of impressive installations that stretch the limits of what you may expect to find in an art museum. The abstract nature, as well as the size of the galleries, are precisely what make Dia:Beacon an approachable art museum with kids.
Aside from the art itself, the journey to Dia:Beacon with kids either by road or by train along the Hudson River provides a welcome respite from the horn honking, occasional smells, and breakneck pace of the city. Skirt along the Harlem and Hudson Rivers, watch the Columbia University crew team row about and gaze at the grace of sailboat gliding by. Upon arrival, the vast well lit galleries covering over three floors provide a great opportunity to simply exhale and engage the imagination.Read more
