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

its really small but the sculptures, the outdoor space, and the general peace this space provides are so worth a trip out of the city, we live in the neighborhood and drop in every once in a while - the cafe is nice and the garden is just amazing.

This museum is a very comprehensive offering of the entire panoply of periods/works from Noguchi as it comprised his original workshop. There is even a cinematic presentation of his life. One can spend an entire morning or afternoon there, but it is a bit off the beaten track, so you either have to hike from the Astoria line or take... More

This museum traces the artistic development of Japanese/American artist Isamo Noguchi. Good stone and wood sculptures and lovely space. Also his memorable paper lanterns are displayed and the manufactured versions are sold here. Worth making a trip, especially if combined with local MoMA PS1 or the Socrates Sculpture Gardens by the water
