This quiet museum showcases and art and the story of Isamu Noguchi, an extraordinary but not sufficiently well-known Japanese American artist. The museum is beautifully arranged, informative, and displays his art in ingenious ways. There are places to sit and relax, to contemplate the art and its meaning.

I found peace and simplicity there - it was an escape from a city tropical jungle and noise into a calm and airy shelter, filled with various shapes - some simple, some sophisticated. And I stayed there a long time with almost nobody around (Friday morning) - pensive and nonchalant...and also sat dreaming on a bench in a Jen garden.... More

it took us years to finally walk into Noguchi and now we can't stay away. serene, beautiful and yes the garden is very Zen. love to spend some time there on a hot day, enjoy the beauty and escape the concrete jungle outside. a quick walk across the street from Socrates. a must see .

I love the Naguchi Museum. It is small and intimate.....a place where you can find your "spot" and just "be". Wonderful sculptures abound.....Worth the trip to Long Island City!

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.
