Specialty Museum Museum
In 1974, Noguchi purchased an industrial building across the street from his studio in Long Island City, Queens. The new space was used as an office, studio, and storage facility before it was converted into The Noguchi Museum, which opened to the public in 1985.

The Noguchi Museum consists of twenty-seven thousand square feet of gallery space on two floors as well as the sculpture garden. The ground-floor galleries contain a permanent presentation of Noguchi's artwork, selected and arranged by the artist. The upper level contains additional artworks from the permanent collection as well as temporary thematic exhibitions relating to Noguchi's artistic production and influence.

  • Dedicated to Noguchi. And his works. It is in his former studio. And houses many of his works, a learning center , and a combination restaurant-gift shop. Set in a park like setting it is stimulating ...  more »
  • Japanese American nisei, the AKARI series such as the Isamu Noguchi Museum. Not more than 15 minutes walk from the Metro station so location is good. The taxi is better. Exhibit is equipped, including the garden, echoed letter to struggle and various authorities I licked as a Japanese American during World War II. I think museums can be recommended to everyone is like dying.

  • 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,...  more »

  • Amazing how this man got involved with the hardest materials in the world, granite (so many types), basalt, marbles (so many and so different) even terracotta, wood, bronze and steel and still managed to forma the most desirable shapes with most seductive curves and textures but, you are not allowed to touch them or somebody will jump and scold you. Why did the artist do all those special textures and surfaces if not to feel with your tactile sense the beauty of the object? Still an amazingly beautiful and inspiring exhibition of an outstanding artist.
  • A beautiful place to spend an afternoon - the first Friday of every month is Free! What an incredible artist.
  • Really liked the lower level of the museum, particularly the basalt statues. Didn't know much about Noguchi except for his work for Herman Miller until I visited, he's so much more than that.
  • Such a peaceful place. The garden is so nice. You can really relax and enjoy the art work here. Never a rush.
  • Nice collection of Noguchi's art. Admission fee was slightly higher than what I felt was worth it.
