My family and I drove up to Dia:Beacon this past weekend to escape the city. I've seen this museum in so many photos but it was my first time there. It's a fantastic museum and a nice relief from the many crowded museums in New York City. Normally, my kids don't love art museums but Dia is different. The space itself is thoughtfully conceived and absolutely stunning—impeccably lit with natural light from almost every angle—and its roominess lends itself to comfortable exploration for all ages.
