Located in an industrial neighborhood in Queens, about 20 mins from Manhattan. Sunday Shuttles from Manhattan. The museum houses a comprehensive and impressive representation of Isamu Noguchi's work in wood, granite, stone, paper and ceramic creations over his lifetime. Well laid out indoor and outdoor setting conducive to quiet contemplation. The second floor displays were most impressive. There is a... More

A small but interesting museum of the work of Isamu Noguchi and current exhibitions of those he influenced. When you buy admission, find out when the biographical video begins on the second floor, and plan your visit to see it. Fascinating life story that resulted in the work you'll see.

Environs outside are spartan (barring Socrates Sculpture Park) perhaps even bleak - parked on the street (for free) inside is a bit of an oasis, however - [pleasant environs/nice sequence/good design, nominal gift store/interesting Pratt student analytiques in the basement] Figure 90 minutes, give or take/depending on the design interest of visitors/weather and mood - some great stone sculptures, that...

Lovely garden with fountains, separates you from the rest of the noisy world, Noguchi's design and art is a bonus.

One usually goes to a museum for the display. Here the display becomes one of the visitor. It is a calming, introspective time while enjoying and learning from the art it self. A rare New York time and more than the greatest expectations. Never get tired of going there again and again.

We went in the morning with a group which got split in half, one half did the tour first, the other half did a project which we paid a modest amount to do. Our guide was sweet and well informed. We spent a lot of time discussing 2 pieces and what everyone thought about them. I would have liked a... More

Beautiful visit in Long Island. We enjoyed it thoroughly - from the peaceful garden to the clean line design and a satan encounter.

This is an exquisite place. It does not DO so called "INSTALLATION ART". So if you want to be herded into a gallery after waiting 10 minutes, to sit in the dark and marvel when a small square opens in the ceiling to the sky, do NOT go to the Noguchi Museum, go to PS 1. But if you want... More

If you like modern sculpture and architecture, this quiet, out-of-the-way Queens museum is hard to beat. It's a fantastic collection of some of the best modern work in stone, wood, and metal I've ever seen. It captures the artist beautifully.
