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.

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
