Tucked away in a corner of Long Island City,the Noguchi Museum is not necessarily easy to get to. But once you get there ,you are amply rewarded by the scope and quality of the works presented. The Museum is tailored to the works in a relatively small space. You can admire the sculptures and textures up close and be inspired... More

Although I was drawn to the work of Isamu Noguchi through his table and lighting designs, I was pleasantly surprised by his prolific sculpture work, predominantly in stone. This museum is a tranquil space to savor his work, both in the building interior and in the outdoor garden. In fact, I would describe the outdoor garden as inspiring the feeling... More

What a gem! The Noguchi Museum and Garden, the first and only museum owned, designed and established by, for and of an artist, has been around for 30+ years in Long Island City, Queens. It's in a rapidly changing neighborhood, so it will get more noticed by locals and travelers. We got lucky and had a brilliant tour by the... More

This is THE museum for a Noguchi fan! There's an abundance of his work there. The biographical video is very informative and gives insight to his life as a western japanese artist. The museum landscape is serene and captures his quiet reverence in stone and wood. How to get there: It's situated at the tip of Astoria (called Long Island... More

I didn't know much about Noguchi before coming here. Museum was designed by him and features the huge breath of his work. He was a very talented artist and worked in a variety of mediums and styles. There is an approximately 50 minute film about him and his life which is well worth seeing. Very small cafe with limited drinks... More

The museum is set in an industrial area in a very unassuming building. The surprise starts as soon as you enter. The interaction between the minimalist architecture and landscaping and the beautiful organic sculptures is so thoughtful. It is a great place to spend an hour or two and the size is not overwhelming. The museum also has a very... More

I have always enjoyed the look and feel of stone. Noguchi is a masterful sculptor. I can feel the smooth surfaces without even touching them. This museum is a quiet place to commune with oneself and the thought-provoking art.
