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.

We visited the museum on a Saturday afternoon. It is a great space with interesting flows from inside to outside and back again. The sculpture is interesting and stunning. The story of Mr. Noguchi, which I didn't know before visiting the museum, is well described...More

I am not a fan of modern art but this museum was impressive. There is a corner where you can watch a video of the life story of Isamu Noguchi. Do so if you are not familiar with the artist. He was a philosopher at...More

Light pours in through larger floor to ceiling windows. We had a guide, who showed and discussed about a few of Noguchis pieces and the building. The use of a variety of stone and placement throughout the building provides a a refreshing experience. I can...More

Noguchi's work is always on display here, so even if there isn't a special exhibit, the museum and the grounds are worthwhile visiting -- a wonderfully restful place, and I enjoy waking over the 59th Street Bridge to visit. Noguchi volunteered to join an internment...More

It takes a bit of courage to find this museum but once there, between the tour, the gift shop and cafe, and the amazing garden, it is easy to spend a good two hours or more. Noguchi's artistic life is one of full engagement with...More

This is a great museum off the beaten track, which also means not too full, even during the tourist season. Noguchi was one of the foremost artists of 20th century America -- when you see one or the other work, or his designs for tables...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
