The Noguchi Museum, chartered as The Isamu Noguchi Foundation and Garden Museum, is a museum and sculpture garden in the Long Island City section of Queens, New York City, designed and created by the Japanese-American sculptor Isamu Noguchi. Opening on a limited basis to the public in 1985, the museum and foundation were intended to preserve and display Noguchi's sculptures, architectural models, stage designs, drawings, and furniture designs. The two-story, 24,000 square feet (2,200 m2) museum and sculpture garden, one block from the Socrates Sculpture Park, underwent major renovations in 2004 allowing the museum to stay open year-round.

  • I can't express how much I am impressed with the museum. I'm not necessarily a huge fan of abstract, but the way the sculptures and other art have been curated it breathtaking. So much natural...

  • My third visit. Extremely pleasant outdoor space. $5 admission for seniors and students. Photography encouraged. If you like contemporary sculpture, run.

  • Very beautiful museum with great Japanese inspiration! Really loved all the sculptures and origami. The whole place was tranquil and relaxing. There was a lot to explore and it wasn't too cluttered or confusing to navigate. Highly recommend stopping by for some culture!
  • Possibly my favorite NYC museum. Usually on the quiet side. Go in nicer weather to experience the garden. And try for the daily 2 p.m. free guided tour for some different takes on what you are seeing. Don't be a baby; it's not hard to get there. Quick subway ride from midtown followed by a 15 minute walk—and you can hit the Costco liquor store next door on the way home! Bonus!
