While most of the displayed works came from Noguchi, a few pieces on display were created by other artists. The works are entirely abstract. I don’t recall seeing anything by him in the exhibit that one could call representative. If you let your imagination go,...More

I visited several years ago and spent time looking at each piece. Of course, titles are often an afterthought of such organic pieces as these. My partner was not so much interested in the pieces in the museum but enjoyed those in the lovely garden....More

We came here because my wife loves Hermes handbags, thinking that Noguchi was a "street" way of writing "No Gucci". We were hoping to see some, and maybe try some out and pick out one or two styles to purchase at the discount Hermes outlet...More

What a wonderful surprise this was. A whole museum dedicated to the work of Isamu Noguchi. Beautifully presented and explained. So worth the trip! Best reached via NYC ferry to Astoria from where it's just a short stroll.

Definitely take the NYC East River Ferry (East 34th Street) to Astoria to save time and have a nice ride. Noguchi is about a 10-15 minute walk past Socrates Park and Costco. The "N" subway station at Broadway in Astoria/Queens is closed for renovation. This...More

This small museum is a gem. It's not a museum in the usual sense, it's where Noguchi chose to work later in life, near to skilled stone workers in then industrial Long Island City. The design of the building beautifully highlights the structure of the...More

I would spend about one hour, plus or minus, in the Noguchi Museum. Well worth the visit! The Socrates Sculpture Garden is a short two block walk from the Noguchi. You could spend another 30-45 minutes there exploring and... More
