A beautiful and relaxing place to visit. Noguchi's sculptures are both minimalistic and emotive. It's even nice in the winter time even though part of the museum is outdoors.
Great museum, super zen
Contemplative hidden gem with lovely cafe/bookshop too.
A hidden gem of a museum... Go when you need some peace
Everything is amazingly beautiful...
No strollers allowed, but they will give you a baby carrier.
Cool space right next to a Costco!
Make your day even classier by visiting the nearby Costco for a 1.50 hot dog combo!
Very calm and serene
A wonderful museum perfect for sunny and rainy days alike. The documentary playing on loop by the elevator on the second floor is a great primer, maybe start there.
very elegant and serene place for display Noguchi's sculpture.
One of my favorite museum!
Best secret garden. Come to the 2pm public tour!
A hidden gem. Great architecture (open air spaces, peaceful sculpture garden) and beautiful pieces thoughtfully laid out, showcasing Noguchi as a subtle master of material and texture.
During WWII Noguchi voluntarily entered a Japanese internment camp (as a NY resident he was exempt), then applied to leave one month later.
Peaceful. A convenient escape from the hustle and bustle.
Such a wonderful architecture gallery and garden with a zen concept.
Lots of rocks. Some sketches, too! :-)
Make sure to find the laminated info sheets to provide context on the sculptures!
Having worked there for over a year, I always told visitors to visit the garden last. Great coffee and food in the cafe, and the big sofa in the cafe will get you the best view of the garden.
If you want a little background on the exhibits, you'll want to show up for the guided tour at 2pm (Noguchi liked his pieces displayed unaccompanied by titles or text).
Take a stroll in the garden, let the nature and sculptures sway you into serenity.
do not miss this!!!
It was set up in an abandoned factory space in Ravenswood, Queens by Japanese sculptor Isamu Noguchi (1904-1988) in 1985. It currently hosts an exhibition on the future of Ravesnwood.
The museum functions as an exhibition space for the artist's large-scale sculptures.
Today is free!!
A haven for those seeking some Zen and Tranquility! Make your pilgrimage on the first Friday of the month for pay-what-you-wish admission.
Learn more about the life of the artist Isamu Noguchi by watching the film in the Museum's Video Room.
Nature as a sactuary
Cool point: The OTHER Noguchi Museum is a studio and garden in the village of Mure on the Japanese island of Shikoku.
A place of zen and peace. A chance to reflect on simplicity and to contemplate the history of abstract art in the 20th century.
Summer beer garden is awesome.
Don't miss this jewel. Peaceful and beautiful. Worth a detour.
Be sure not to miss the second floor gallery filled with Noguchi's tender-beautiful drawings of animals. They are all kinds of rad.
To walk through the museum’s tranquil sculpture garden with someone you love is a rare treat. Later, sip exotic cocktails at Dutch Kills (27-24 Jackson Ave.), an artsy watering hole.

Try the toasted rice green tea in the café. Amazing!
An oasis of transporting sculptures and calm, Zen-like environments designed by Japanese-American modernist Isamu Noguchi.
This is a indoor outdoor museum so pick a day with nice weather so you can enjoy the sculptures in the outdoors. There are also performances here so check their calendar.
Go here and have a look around. Go for FREE on Saturday, September 25th! Thanks for the heads up, WLA...
Go to Noguchi Museum for a break from the hustle & bustle of the city. Meditate in the sculpture garden.
