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

Love Noguchi--his former studio and art and sculpture garden may be the best kept secret in NYC. On of my favorite art venues--anywhere. Revolving art installations keep the museum fresh. The sculpture garden is interactive, zen-like and bucolic. Loved it!

Oh WOW!! Just awesome… words fail me ~ but one simply has to find some to write a review, no..??? So, let’s press on….. Hmmm… interesting building (first impression as we approach this almost drab exterior with some architectural embellishments on one side) located in an average (read “formerly”) run-down section of New York’s Long Island City (Queens) waterfront, which...

I visit New York often but, finally, I got to go to the Noguchi Museum in Queens. I just loved it. Check it out and see it for yourself. I found the visit really worthwhile and I intend to go back every time I visit the city. Beautiful modern sculptures, that really opens your mind to what a genius Noguchi... More

This small museum is well worth the visit (as long as you appreciate Japanese monolithic sculpture). The nearby park and local restaurants make this a prime day trip. Walk to Roosevelt Island and take the cable car to Manhattan if you have time.

I heard about The Noguchi Museum in one of the local Long Island City, New York brochures and I am so glad that I made it there. They have two floors of fantastic Sculptures with a pretty garden on the outside, along with a video about the artists life and an impressive gift shop. It is definitely a Must See... More

I knew nothing of Noguchi before visiting this museum, but the staff were so friendly, the guide notes so helpful and the space so beautifully laid out that I'd recommend a visit. The basalt and marble works downstairs caught my particular attention. Even better that the Socrates Sculpture Park (free!) is just across the road. Best to come from Broadway... More

It's a bit of an adventure getting there (subway, bus, walking a few blocks), but it's well worth it. The museum itself is multi-level with nice light, and the work is quite varied and quite powerful and beautiful. I'd look up his work, if you're unfamiliar with it, before going out there, just to make sure you'll appreciate it. I... More
