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.

Well laid out indoor and outdoor...More

Lovely garden with fountains, separates you from the rest of the noisy world, Noguchi's design and art is a bonus.

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...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
