Dia Beacon is a contemporary art museum located in Beacon, New York. Opened in 2003, it's now home to many large-scale installations, paintings, and sculptures.
Dia Beacon is located adjacent to the Beacon train station. Take the train from Grand Central Terminal if you're coming from New York.
Highly recommend stopping by Woodbury Common Outlet for some shopping after a trip to Dia:Beacon. Expect to spend 2 hours at the museum.
