For a cool and sensual experience take a leisurely stroll through the Noguchi museum and dive into a little Zen. Very interesting sculptures and gardens, displaying the works of this world famous artist in a fairly compact space. You can take a complete tour and not feel exhausted, and you will also be just a block away from the Socrates... More

Walk along the nondescript road north in Long Island City when before you appears an equally plain building - the Noguchi Museum. Once past the personable women who staff the ticket counter when before you the magic of Noguchi enthralls you. Make sure you properly explore all the nooks and crannies because surprises are stashed in corners throughout the two-story... More

I visited this museum one summer while on a walking tour from Roosevelt Island and we walked over the bridge into Long Island City. It was hot and I was looking forward to some cool air conditioning. Boy was I wrong, the museum lacked sufficient AC but it was still a reprieve from the sun and long walking we did... More

The Noguchi Museum was founded and designed by internationally renowned, Japanese-American artist Isamu Noguchi (1904–1988) for the display of what he considered to be representative examples of his life’s work. Opened in 1985, the Museum is housed in a converted industrial building, connected to a building and interior garden of Noguchi’s design. The museum is fascinating, with superb examples of... More

If you ever need a great space to relax, unwind and enjoy beautiful art, then look no further. I really love Noguchi and love that some of his work is also exhibited at other museums around the city.

Brilliant museum of Japanese-American artist in Long Island City. Excellent collection in well done museum. Covers all aspects of his work -- great sculptures on the ground floor most spectacular. But all grand. With small coffee shop and book stone.See also Socrates Sculpture Garden across the street.

The Nogushi Museum pays tribute to a unique artist whose work transcends art to pontificate the human experience of trying to fit in yet being denied belonging to any particular culture. This is a shared human experience, especially for the millions of immigrants and those who are descendants of intercultural and interracial unions. Seeing his splendid pieces of art, I... More

I visited this museum as part of an art tour. We were spending the day viewing sculpture. I only really knew Noguchi's home furnishings and had never seen his sculpture. He designed this museum. It has has indoor and outdoor galleries. The work on display spans his career. It's quite beautiful. There is so much to learn about this forward... More

The Noguchi Museum is a wonderful collection in space chosen by one of the greatest artists of the 20th Century. If you love art, this is a "must see." Noguchi was an iconic presence and his art is both interesting and beautiful. The museum is not that large, but what a show. Set in an amazing industrial area to allow... More

Beautiful small museum totally devoted to the work of Isamu Noguchi. Well worth the trip. And located near (walking distance) the Socrates Sculpture Park; and not too far from MOMA PS 1 annex (but too far to walk). Parking is a problem. There is a Costco around the corner and I was tempted to park in their lot, but someone... More
