Tips

  • To walk through the museums 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.
  • Cool point: The OTHER Noguchi Museum is a studio and garden in the village of Mure on the Japanese island of Shikoku.
  • Go to Noguchi Museum for a break from the hustle & bustle of the city. Meditate in the sculpture garden.
  • An oasis of transporting sculptures and calm, Zen-like environments designed by Japanese-American modernist Isamu Noguchi.
  • Take a stroll in the garden, let the nature and sculptures sway you into serenity.
  • 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.
  • A place of zen and peace. A chance to reflect on simplicity and to contemplate the history of abstract art in the 20th century.
  • A walk-through gives you the sense of floating on your back in a large, boundless ocean. I credit this feeling to either Zen or some kind of piped-in hallucinatory gas.
  • 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.
  • Learn more about the life of the artist Isamu Noguchi by watching the film in the Museum's Video Room.
  • Every second Sunday of the month, the Noguchi Museum assembles renowned experts to engage in dialogues. Events take place at 3pm on the second Sunday of each month.
  • 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.
  • This is my favorite quiet small place in the city. It's tranquil and calming.
  • Come see the most influential works throughout Noguchis life and learn about the man who persevered where most would have given up. Beautiful space but come on a sunny day.
  • A tranquil gem and a getaway from NY's hustle. Two floors of beautiful sculptures with a gorgeous outdoor yard. This fairly large museum is 'food for the soul' if you're into sculpture or abstract art
  • Staggeringly lovely space, peaceful environment, and the work shows the mastery of an artist in love with his materials.
  • Very nice crowd and ambiance
  • Fantastic museum, created by the artist himself! The permanent sculpture exhibition is serene, and the second floor holds seasonal exhibits.
  • Its a much smaller museum than I expected. Admission is free on the first Friday of the month though (and pretty reasonably priced regardless: $10).
  • For a local spot its so enriching and offers great exhibits throughout
