A Must See for Noguchi Fans

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!

German? Beard? 6 foot tall dark blond girl friend? Oh yeah! This place is for you! If you travel for contemporary art, then make a bee line. Two floors of indoor/outdoor gallery space, a garden, cafe and gift shop. You'll be among an international mix of French, German and Asian tourists as well as those upper west siders who have...

... but I am glad I went. Some of the sculptures are absolutely fascinating. Like a water fountain that you have to look at several times to realize that it's a water fountain. This is worth a visit.

The artist conceived and built this place to house his own stuff. Stunning collection, well showcased with helpful signage.

A must see and and a short walk from the N train to the east river in Astoria. Next to Costco and the Socrates Sculpture Park, this place is fantastic, as is the sculptor. And there is an outdoor area with benches. Great place to hang out and relax!!

The museum is beautiful--the interior itself, and the comprehensive collection of sculptures as well. It's well worth the effort to get there, if you appreciate Noguchi's aesthetic, which I do...and you'll appreciate his work even more after seeing so much of it so well displayed. There's a nice bookshop and small cafe as well. The garden was closed for renovation,... More
