    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.

    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.

    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.

    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).

  • Anne W.

    Take a stroll in the garden, let the nature and sculptures sway you into serenity.

    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.

    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.

  • Carolina M.

    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 to Noguchi Museum for a break from the hustle & bustle of the city. Meditate in the sculpture garden.
