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

This was a pleasant surprise. Very lovely sculptures / installations in a small museum, extending into a pleasant outdoor space. It's worth a visit if you're in the area. I spent about an hour. The first Friday of the summer they have extended evening hours...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

This is a place if you have a liking for abstract art. We did not get chance for a guided tour, such places require a guided tour as it is not simple for an average person to interpret and appreciate the art pieces. The green...More

The Noguchi museum popped up when my husband and I were looking for a day excursion. It said it was 2+ miles from midtown so we set out for the subway. Not our best choice since we are tourists in NYC. We finally made it...More

Noguchi was a major presence in American art post WWII. The museum, formerly his workshop, is a beautiful, industrially austere space, partially wrapped around a courtyard garden. Noguchi’s work is prominently displayed and I, never a fan, walked away hugely impressed. The museum also has...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
