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.

Long Island City is gentrifying rapidly. Isamu Noguchi likely would not recognize the neighborhood today, but that also means that it's easier to visit than ever. There's an indoor set of galleries, the outside sculpture garden, and a small cafe and gift shop; perfect for a leisurely visit. If you appreciate this Japanese American artist, visit this wonderful museum.

There is a reason that people from all over the world are flocking to the Noguchi Museum just across the East River from Manhattan in Queens. It is a phenomenal showcase of The Master's Work. Take your good camera as lighting is low, and the level of detail is outstanding. And wear clothing that protects you from the elements, like... More

My young adult daughter (who's NY-based in the art world) guided me over on the N train from Manhattan. It is about a 10 block walk on Broadway over to the river and the brick Noguchi site. Because it was a sunny November Friday, the two of us first enjoyed the outdoors Socrates Sculpture park with its provocative installations; great... More

Worth going there even if this might appear quite as an expedition to discover Noguchi zen world in Queens!
