Why locals recommend it
Housed in a former Nabisco box printing factory on the banks of the Hudson, the museum was designed with the help of artist Robert Irwin. Its collection of minimalist and land art includes exemplary works by Richard Serra, Walter de Maria, Louise Bourgeois, Gerhard Richter, and Donald Judd. Ask the gallery attendants—nicely!—to open the gate so you can walk right up to Heizer’s sculptures and see their scale. This works best on the weekends.

In 2003, a 300,000-square-foot former Nabisco box factory on Beacon’s waterfront was converted into this cutting-edge contemporary art museum. Fantastic Art Collection. If you have a strong interest in Contemporary Art- this is a MUST. As good as any NYC museums. 45 minutes drive from Kingston.

The Dia:Beacon Museum, about 30 minutes away, is another great museum for those interested in art. Dia features collections from the 1960's to modern day.
