10. Dream House

The most surrealist quiet experience in this list, the Dream House in Soho offers a peaceful surrounding like no other. Created in 1993 by married artists La Monte Young and Marian Zazeela, the space is dedicated to using the mediums of light and sound simultaneously in order to engage you in an entirely novel way. Open from 2pm to midnight from Wednesday through Saturday, entry is just $10, a small price to pay for the other-worldly experience inside.

The burning incense and eerie lighting of the environment are often the first aspects of the exhibit that greet viewers, but the carpeted floors and pillows also contribute to the relaxing mood of the space. A humming sound accompanies all of this stimulus, so constant that it eventually becomes white noise amidst the purple hue of the room. Although not for everyone, the Dream House is a well-hidden secret that aims to be a haven of tranquility amidst the cobbled streets of Soho.
