This small museum is kind of out of the way from Manhattan but it is very good and someone interested in art should think about going

It’s a trek from the Broadway station on the N/Q, but well worth it, and the area near the station has a wealth of Greek and other restaurants. There’s also a bus from Asia Society. Isamu Noguchi’s beautiful stone sculptures are the main focus, but there are changing exhibits of his other work, architecture, costume, brushwork, etc. This was Noguchi’s... More

First of all, the venue for the museum is art in and of itself. The industrial building is full of light and strategically placed sculptures that take full advantage of the shadows cast on art through the massive window panels. The indoor/outdoor effect of the open air gallery by the front entrance greets you with impact that is maintained throughout... More

If you have not experienced Noguchi's art, you have missed a lot. This is a museum that rivals some of the best in NY. This is worth the trip across the river.

To explore the Noguchi studio/museum is such a pleasure....serene and exciting at the same time. There is a full range of this masters ` work to be viewed, and the garden, in a somewhat Japanese style, is a calm oasis of great beauty.

For Astoria residents, the Noguchi museum provides for a unique and interesting afternoon that you won’t be able to experience elsewhere in the city. Inside the museum there are numerous sculptures by Isamu Noguchi. As you go through the museum, you’ll see a garden in the back. The garden is amazing, filled with unique sculptures by Noguchi and Asian flora.... More

This museum contains examples of this sculptor's work thru all phases of his life. They are gorgeously displayed in his studio and garden.

Lovely, tranquil homage to Isamu Noguchi in the middle of Queens. Beautiful and minimalist (the irony is that there's a Costco right across the street-the opposite of minimalist) building with indoor and outdoor gardens. A must visit if you're a fan of mid-century modern art, sculpture or aesthetics.

I've been wanting to visit the Noguchi Museum for many years, but it has always been making the trip that kept me from going there. I even lived in Queens for almost 10 years - and believe me, Queens has a shortage of world-class museums - but still I never managed to make the trip. Well, finally on Valentine's Day... More
