Our visit to Isamu Noguchi's New York museum was something of a pilgrimage for the Man of the House and while I was quite looking forward to seeing it, I didn't have any particular expectations for the visit. So it was a great and welcome...More

Being totally unfamiliar with this artist's work and for that matter with Astoria in general though I grew up in Queens,I was truly amazed at this wonderful museum minutes away from Manhattan but miles away in tone. The gardens designed by Noguchi himself afford a...More

A highlight to exploring Astoria Queens is seeing the Noguchi Museum. With an in-depth collection of the Japanese-American sculptor's works, in light-filled warehouse-like spaces, lofts, and in a rock garden. From a perfectly balanced one piece stone fountain to large basalt sculptures and small intricate...More

Noguchi is not necessarily well known to the everyday museum goer. That's unfortunate since his work is extraordinary. His sculpture emerges from the essence of his materials - stone, steel, wood, etc. The museum is small and not necessarily so conveniently located though, if I...More

Dedicated to Noguchi. And his works. It is in his former studio. And houses many of his works, a learning center , and a combination restaurant-gift shop. Set in a park like setting it is stimulating and relaxing. And is a great medium to see...More

Isamu Noguchi's work presented in a loft-like setting with a peaceful outdoor garden is an oasis of calm in the frenetic environment of New York. The stone, metal and wood mid-20th century sculptures, especially when experienced en masse, give the viewer a feeling of tranquility...More

Peaceful outdoor sculpture garden; I should have spent some time sitting on a bench and appreciating the calm. The free Socrates Sculpture Garden is 1-2 blocks away, past COSTCO. If you're from out of the area, I'd recommend you stop there before or after the...More

I combined a visit to Socrates sculpture park with Noguchi museum. Some fascinating stone sculptures and some unusual art also. The outdoor space is attractive. There are benches to sit and be reflective. The art was not for everyone I would suggest. Small cafe but...More

A lovely out of the way sculpture museum in Long Island City, Queens, N.Y. Friendly staff and professional presentation. A hidden gem of a museum.

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
