Our visit to Isamu Noguchi's New York museum was something of a pilgrimage for the Man of the House and while I was quite looking forward to seeing it, I didn't have any particular expectations for the visit. So it was a great and welcome...More

A highlight to exploring Astoria Queens is seeing the Noguchi Museum. With an in-depth collection of the Japanese-American sculptor's works, in light-filled warehouse-like spaces, lofts, and in a rock garden. From a perfectly balanced one piece stone fountain to large basalt sculptures and small intricate...More

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 and relaxing. And is a great medium to see...More

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 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
